There is so much research stating the significant academic and social benefits for a child when a parent volunteers at their child's school. When parents are involved, the message is sent that school is important, performance is monitored and support is available. Children love to see their parents in the classroom! And so do we!
In addition to the benefits for families, LCA gains so much from parent volunteers, too. LCA operates on a very tight budget and employ very few support staff. You won't find a paid librarian or lunchroom supervisor at LCA. Our parents appreciate our frugality and volunteer their time to manage the library, operate the lunch program, assist in the classrooms, act as advisers for extra-curricular activities, serve on governing boards and so much more!
The administration of Lake Country Academy believes parent involvement is so important that the school's contract with SASD was written with the intent that parents volunteer 40 hours per school year. LCA exists today because of the commitment, dedication and hard work from our parents. Volunteer opportunities can be viewed at Sign Up Genius. If you have an idea on how you'd like to help but don't see it listed, just call the school office. We are always looking for new opportunities to include our parents.
