Whether your passion is helping in the classroom or participating in an event, KCA has an opportunity for you to make a difference. Choose from a variety of activities throughout the year:
• Annual Autumn Auction • Booster club • Room Parents/Classroom • Parent readers • Art/P.E./Computer class • Open house • Bookstore • Front office
For the safety of our students, we require all volunteers who work directly with our students to be fingerprinted. You can pick-up a fingerprinting card from our front office and make an appointment with a local police station. Currently, the Waldorf stations are offering this service, although the Leonardtown office will soon be able to help. The charge is $54, however, KCA will reimburse you for the cost.
Who Should I Contact?
If you’re interested in volunteering in your child’s classroom, simply contact the teacher directly for a list of opportunities.
After volunteering, please enter your hours in the volunteer binder at the front desk. This is vital to ensure you receive proper credit for your efforts.
