Helping children grades K-12 is what teaching, parenting and volunteering is all about. 

Volunteers Make a Difference:

Volunteers can change lives. As a volunteer in Middletown City Schools you have the opportunity to help children master new skills, achieve higher levels of learning, and give the one-on-one attention children need. 

You’ll also provide the support and involvement in their lives that all children need to become caring, effective adults who will strengthen our community. 

We are all part of a team:

Volunteers donate time to help students, teachers and staff. They work under the direction of the principal, staff member and the school’s volunteer coordinator. By inviting parents and community members to volunteer, as a team we can: 

  • Relieve teachers of many non-teaching duties and tasks
  • Assist teachers in providing more individual help and instruction to students
  • Strengthen relationships and understanding between schools and the community 

School Principals have the final authority over what happens in their school, including the volunteer program and parent group activities. Principals are responsible for setting guidelines for volunteers working in the school, developing a positive working relationship with volunteers, and encouraging staff members to utilize volunteer help. 

If you would like more information about volunteering, please fill out the Volunteer Application, and our Volunteer Coordinator will be in contact with you.
