The Polk County Christian School board and administration believe that an atmosphere of excellence in education and one that is centered on Christ can only be achieved through the diligent involvement and cooperation of students’ parents or guardians. The school is proud to have such great support from our parents and guardians. Each year they give and bless the school with their time and dedication. Teamwork is a driving theme of the school. Everyone is invited to our family, no matter their ability to be the hands and feet of God. We welcome your family with loving arms and pray your time with us will be richly blessed.
Ways to Get Involved
Parent-Teacher Fellowship (PTF) meetings will be held throughout the year as a means of allowing parents to assist in the school program and to show their support for the school. These meetings offer ways of emphasizing the importance of Christian education with the added benefit of providing godly fellowship. Parents are highly encouraged to attend these meetings.
Since the Christian school is an extension of the home, PCCS recognizes the importance of the parents and the teachers working together.
Parent Volunteer Time
Since PCCS relies so heavily upon parental involvement and support, it is expected that parents volunteer time each year to help keep costs at a minimum.
Volunteer hours may be in the following areas: janitorial and secretarial work, yard care, chapel programs, special subjects instruction (e.g. music, P.E., computers, art), chapel programs, PCCS yearbook production and picture development, field trip transportation and supervision, fundraiser planning and implementation, parent-teacher fellowship planning and attendance, teachers’ or the administrator’s aid (as needed), and other permissible responsibilities.
Work hours will be on the honor system and may include work done at home for the school as well as done at the school. Volunteer hours need to be met sometime within the current school year. Preschool parents (as couples) must fulfill at least 10 hours of volunteer time per year; kindergarten through eighth-grade parents (as couples) must fulfill at least 25 hours per year. Single parents must volunteer at least half of the time required by a couple.
Volunteer in the Classroom
Room parents are a huge blessing to our teachers. Their vital role helps make the classroom environment reach its maximum potential. If you would like to volunteer your time to give some assistance to our teachers and to set an example to our students, please contact us.
