Classroom Wishes and Needs
5th Grade 1-on-1 Volunteer: Our 5th grade teaching team is looking for volunteers to work with students one-on-one to support a range of needs in the classroom. The time commitment is flexible but it would be great if a volunteer had a few hours per week to offer for several months or for the year. Volunteers need to have a current background check and must have attended a Level II ACS training. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you can help!
Serving as a Volunteer in the Classroom or as a Field Trip Chaperone This Year
Also, if you haven't already done so, you'll need to attend a Level II volunteer training with Asheville City Schools before you can volunteer at Claxton. The training is a one-time requirement (not needed each year) and this year's schedule is set so go ahead and make plans to attend one of these brief (~20 min) trainings. Please see below for the schedule.
All trainings are held in the Board Room at the Central Office of Asheville City Schools at 85 Mountain Street. No registration is required to attend the training.
The full ACS Volunteer Training Schedule for 2018-2019 is linked here. Dates coming soon include--
Wednesday, November 7, 2018, at 12:00 PM
Wednesday, December 5, 2018, at 12:00 PM
If you have any questions about volunteer requirements for Claxton and Asheville City Schools, please contact email@example.com.
