Giving your time is one of the most important things you can do as a parent. It shows your child you’re interested and that you care. It supports faculty and staff in the development of our children. In addition, Volunteering at CES enhances our children’s experiences and makes additional programming possible. There are plenty of opportunities for all parents both in and out of the classroom…some of our most dedicated volunteers are our grandparents! Thank you for taking your time to make a difference in the lives of our children!
Becoming a CES Volunteer:
This year we are excited to have a new volunteer training and orientation process designed by GCISD for becoming a CES Volunteer. This training and orientation includes on-line tools and resources and must be completed by each individual wanting to volunteer on our campus. It only takes 10-20 minutes to complete.
To become an approved volunteer, please follow the link below to the GCISD Volunteer Handbook.
Read the 2016-2017 GCISD Volunteer Handbook.
Complete the Volunteer Background Check form.
View the elementary school (Pre-K-5) video.
Electronically sign the Volunteer Verification form by accessing the Google form for Colleyville Elementary and answering 5 questions.
Once these steps have been completed and you have successfully completed the volunteer background check, you will be added to the list of CES approved volunteers. Please remember that GCISD will not notify you of your volunteer status. Check with the CES front office for this information before you volunteer.
Log Your Volunteer Hours:
The CES PTA captures your volunteer hours, demonstrating the importance and high level of parental involvement. Every year the PTA council reports to the district the value in dollars and personnel that equal our parent volunteer hours, and these hours are used in grant applications for our schools.
If you volunteer at CES (on-campus), the CES front office staff will log you into and out of the Raptor system upon your arrival and departure from the school. The Raptor system captures these on-campus hours. If you volunteer off-campus, record your volunteer hours in one of three ways:
Record hours on the volunteer hours log on in the front office.
Log hours directly into the Raptor system through the Raptor web portal (www.V-Volunteer.com).
E-mail your hours to the Volunteer Coordinator, Charlotte Barborka, email@example.com.
Remember that off-campus hours can include CES event/class party preparation time, room parent responsibilities, and chaperoning field trips, among many other things.
Volunteer recognition is very important to us. We recognize volunteers each month for their time and dedication to the students, faculty, and staff of CES. Please look out for announcements of our “Volunteers of the Month”!
