WE NEED YOU!
It is our belief at Lime Street Elementary School that parental support and involvement in a child’s education is an essential element for improving academic achievement. Studies have shown that parental direction, interest, and participation in the student’s educational development affect performance, attitudes and school success. We at Lime Street recognize that we can provide many opportunities for learning, but the crucial element that is needed is assistance from parents and families. There is no replacement for the support, encouragement, approval, and love that parents can give to their children.
We value “parents as partners” in the education of your child. If you would like to volunteer in your child’s classroom, please make sure you have completed an HUSD Volunteer Form (must be done annually) and have been approved by our Board of Trustees. Once you have received Board approval, contact your child’s teacher or the office to discuss how and when you may assist in the classroom. Prior to volunteering for the first time each year, we ask that all volunteers sign a “Professionalism Commitment.” We also ask that volunteers follow these guidelines:
Volunteers must adhere to the Lime Street Dress Code
Volunteers must sign in and out in the front office
We ask that volunteers leave “non-student” children at home
