YOUR HELPING HANDS ARE WELCOME AT SUNSET!
The Livermore Valley Joint Unified School District and Sunset Elementary School welcomes the involvement of families and community members in our schools.
When parents and families get personally involved in education, research has shown that their children do better in school and grow up to be more successful in life.
The Volunteer Handbook
Our school district has created a handbook that has vital information about volunteering in our district/school. It is important for you to review this document to be aware of your responsibilities as a treasured volunteer.
HOW CAN YOU HELP AT SUNSET?
Join our Parent Teacher Organization (PTO)
Sunset School and every school in the district has a Parent Teacher Association (PTA), Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) or Booster Organization. The primary purpose of a school's Parent Club is to assist teachers and staff in providing a quality educational experience for all students by sponsoring student/parent fundraising events. To contact the President of Sunset's PTO email Liz Heaney at Liz.firstname.lastname@example.org
Help in the Classroom
There are plenty of opportunities to assist students and staff in the classroom. Contact your child's teacher for volunteering opportunities. All school volunteers must clear the district's application process.
Offer to Serve on our School Site Council (SSC)
All schools receiving School Improvement Program funds or implementing a School Based Coordinated Plan are required to form a School Site Council which is composed of parents and school personnel. The School Site Council is responsible for developing, implementing and evaluating the School Site Plan. Members serve for two years and are elected by their peers annually at the beginning of the school year. Contact our Sunset School office if you are interested.
