Volunteer

There are a variety of ways to get involved at Browne Academy, below are just a few opportunities. If you would like to get involved, please email pa@browneacademy.org.

VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES 

Classroom Representatives

As a Class Rep, your primary role is to serve as a goodwill ambassador to the parents in your grade. You also disseminate pertinent information from the school and the Browne Academy Parents Association (PA) to the parents/guardians of your child’s class and coordinate parent/guardian participation in certain grade-level activities.

Specific activities may include:

  • Welcoming new families
  • Coordination with the classroom teachers and any other parent volunteers for grade-level events/celebrations
  • Managing the Class Activities Funds (to cover the expenses of class celebrations and extra enhancements such as special projects or additional field trips)
  • Determining the Class Auction project

 Teacher and Faculty Appreciation Events

We have several events planned throughout the year to show our Browne Academy faculty and staff how much we appreciate their time and efforts. This year, we will celebrate with Conference Day Luncheons and Surprise Celebration Treats, as well as with Appreciation Week, which culminates with the Annual Breakfast Event. Thanks to Browne Academy parents, faculty breakfast that day will consist of more than a cup of Joe and cold bagel: Parents donate breakfast foods, gift cards, and their time to allow the faculty to take a break from the hustle and bustle of the morning rush.

Volunteer Opportunities: Setup, donations, carline assistance, breakfast server, playground supervision, cleanup.

Parent Programming and Socials

Throughout the year we work to identify various ways to bring our community together! Whether it’s educational programs for parents like the Parent Speaker Series or purely social gatherings like the Parent Mixers, we are looking for committee members to help plan events, identify topics, and brainstorm ways to engage the community. Events include:

  • Parent Speaker Series
  • Parent Halloween Social
  • Parent Mixer
  • Family Fun Festival
  • Volunteer Appreciation Event
  • Summer Programming 

Volunteer Opportunities: Committee members and day of event volunteers

Parent-Led Fundraisers

Box Top and Loyalty Program

Box Tops and Loyalty Coordinator will collect all the Box Tops from Giant, Safeway, Target, and other loyalty programs and then send them in so Browne Academy can earn cash to purchase books, iPad, or other items. Manage a school-wide contest where the class that submits the most Box Tops earns a “free dress down day”.

Barnes & Noble and On-Campus Book Fairs 

The Book Fairs continue to be a huge success! Our children look forward to making wish lists in anticipation of acquiring new and interesting additions to their libraries. Teachers reap the benefits, too, with generous book donations from Browne Academy parents. 

Volunteer Opportunities: Setup, gift wrapping, cashier/checkout, and packaging items to be return to the vendor. Our Browne Academy library is also always in need of parent volunteers.

Annual Auction & Gala 

Our annual Auction is a major fundraising event led by the Development Office in partnership with the Parents Association. Several committees work together to make this event a success. Committees include Acquisitions and Sponsorships, Marketing and Campus Buzz, Decorations and Entertainment

Volunteer Opportunities: Committee members (committees meet several times throughout the year) and day-of volunteers for item collection, setup, sales, and cleanup.
