Charter school families make a commitment to support their student’s school through volunteer service.  At May Sands Montessori School (MSMS), each family is responsible for giving 25 hours, annually, with five of those hours dedicated toward fundraising activity.  All school service must be verified by committee chairperson or a member of MSMS Staff.  Families must sign in and out and must indicate the type of service completed. We cannot convert monetary donations to Service Hours.  There will be many opportunities for families to earn double service hours through varied forms of support; from serving on committees or volunteering at events, to help promote our school in the community.

DID YOU KNOW??? Your volunteer service hours can help our school receive grant funds!

Community volunteers are also welcome – we appreciate and rely on you!

VOLUNTEER DEFINITIONS (state of Florida regulations require all school volunteers to be cleared at the appropriate volunteer level)

Resource speakers will generate volunteer hours, but are not subject to this policy.
2. Volunteer Visitor: Anyone who comes onto school property, but who is not assigned duties as a school
3. General Volunteer: Any non-paid person appointed by the School Board or its designee who performs
assigned duties that support the District’s students and staff. Volunteers may include, but are not limited
