Thank you for volunteering at Ardenwald Elementary School. Volunteers are so important and we appreciate your time in support of our school and kids!
New volunteer? ALL volunteers must complete a Volunteer Application Form online at the NCSD website. This allows you to be entered into the volunteer tracking system and assist you in case of a medical emergency.
Community volunteer (an adult with no children in the North Clackamas District Schools) or chaperoning/driving for a field trip? A background check through the district is REQUIRED. Please complete a Criminal History Form and submit to the school office. Background checks must be renewed every 3 years.
Volunteering in the school? ALL volunteers must sign-in to our volunteer tracking system, Help Counter, using the volunteer computer located in the school office. It is very important that you sign-in and out each time you volunteer so volunteer hours can be accurately reported to the district. Additionally, signing-in is a requirement to be eligible for coverage under the district liability insurance policy in the unfortunate event of an injury. Furthermore, signing-in allows staff to be aware of who is in the building in case of an emergency.
Volunteer ID? ALL volunteers must wear a volunteer ID badge when signed-in. These are located next to the volunteer computer in the school office. Please wear the volunteer ID badge in a prominent place that is visible to school staff.
Volunteering after school hours or from home? Attending PTO or site council/advisory committee meetings, assisting with PTO/school events, preparing paperwork or decorations at home are just some of the ways your additional volunteer time counts! You can track your time a couple of ways:
- SIGN-IN FROM HOME AT www.helpcounterweb.com/ci/volunteer AND CREATE OR UPDATE YOUR VOLUNTEER PROFILE AS WELL AS SEARCH AND SIGN-UP FOR VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES!
- Complete a Volunteer Time Sheet and turn it in monthly to the PTO volunteer coordinator or school office.
Feel free to contact us with any questions, concerns, or ideas!
