Community Participation

  • Explorer families are asked to volunteer one hour per month to support community activities. Participation in the community supports a wide range of activities on campus further educating the whole child and bringing our community together.
    Options for community volunteering can be classroom-specific (i.e. Cooking, Science, Music, PE, Classroom Coordinator, or Field Trip Coordinator) OR school-wide (i.e. Project Cornerstone, Art, Lunch-Time Activities, Academic Events, Social Events, Carnival, etc.)
