We encourage parent involvement at Baton Rouge Lutheran. We believe that parent involvement is an integral part of the education of the whole child. We encourage our parents to volunteer, on a regular basis or whenever possible. There are plenty of opportunities for parents to participate in school life -- in the library, in the classroom, going on field trips, sharing favorite books, or using your unique talents during different units of study.
Volunteers have played, and will continue to play, an important and valuable role at Baton Rouge Lutheran School. Students, teachers, staff, parents, and the community benefit from the work of individuals who freely share their time, talents and resources.
Students benefit because volunteers provide…
Increased individual attention,
Increased opportunities to relate to adults, and
Increased opportunities to demonstrate respect for adults.
We also know that as a volunteer you, too, will be rewarded. Whether it is one hour a week, one day a week, or one day on a special project - your efforts on or off campus make a difference for our students. We provide many, many opportunities for family members to volunteer and make a significant contribution to the educational experiences of students. Parents, guardians, grandparents, aunts or uncles, or siblings over 18 years of age are all welcome to join in!
Adults benefit because volunteers gain…
Increased understanding of the education process,
Increased understanding of a child’s learning process,
Increased familiarity with the staff and community,
Increased opportunities to practice and build skills, and
Increased opportunities to share their expertise and talents.
Our teachers will make every effort in helping you volunteer for those activities in which you feel comfortable. They are particularly pleased to have you help because when you help the school, directly or indirectly, you support their students.
Teachers benefit because volunteers provide…
Increased time to teach and plan,
Increased opportunities to enrich the curriculum, and
Increased time to positively influence student behavior.
Every summer we provide families with a lengthy list of ways to volunteer, but we also provide the opportunity for family members to “write-in” unique ways they can help. Items checked off on the Volunteer Opportunity Form are simply indications of a willingness to be approached to help in a specified way.
We want to work with each family to help them complete a school-required 3 hours of volunteering for events and causes that directly impact their children.
