We appreciate our volunteers, parents, grandparents, and friends of Grace Cascade Christian Schools. We would not be able to provide the scope of courses, co-curriculars, or even financial assistance, without the many hours of time, talent, and prayer that is gifted to our schools. During the school year our volunteers log 100’s of hours of service in areas such as:
- AllSchool events – Annual Auction, Grandparents Day, Homecoming, Benefit Dinner, and more!
- Lunch program
- “Cookie Moms”
- Classroom helpers
- Library/Media center
- Field trip chaperones
- Office volunteers
For God is not unjust. He will not forget how hard you have worked for him and how you have shown your love to him by caring for other believers, as you still do. ~ Hebrews 6:10 (NLT)
Because we take the safety of our students seriously, there are prerequisites to volunteering in any capacity. These prerequisites are for all volunteers, whether driving, helping in the lunchroom, library, classroom, computer lab, or as a field trip /sporting event chaperone:
- Background Check – Complete a form authorizing a background check and submit to the school office. Grace Cascade Christian Schools contracts with Occuscreen, a professional agency, to process these background screenings. Background clearance is effective for two years, from September through September. From October 1 on, newly approved background checks must be in place for volunteer participation in any school activity. After September, a minimum six-week lead time is required to process background checks. Please plan ahead. This year we will be utilizing an online Occuscreen form. Check RenWeb > ParentsWeb soon for the link!
Potential field trip drivers will be contacted by the teacher and approval is contingent on a DMV record check. A limited number of volunteer drivers will be selected for each field trip.
