The generosity of time and talent is an immeasurable gift to our school. CLWS encourages working together to create a strong and vibrant community for our children and parents. How each of us contributes our time is quite diverse yet every hour contributed is extremely valuable. There are many, many volunteer opportunities at CLWS.
Some of the annual events that require dedicated time from parents and community members to ensure their success include:

There are also many other activities that require volunteer support such as the Annual Giving Campaign, hosting dinner parties and Open Houses, and grant writing to name a few!

Although volunteer hours are not “mandatory” it is important to document your time and notify CLWS staff of your volunteer hours. CLWS estimates the number of volunteer hours contributed to the school in grant applications and for other purposes. It’s a valuable measure of our effectiveness in the community.
