Volunteer for Odyssey PTO
Parent involvement is the cornerstone of Odyssey’s “family classroom” and learning model. Each family is asked to strive towards 100 volunteer hours annually (50 for single-parent households), which allows our school to perform to its values and our programs to thrive. There are almost endless ways to give of your time and talents. Volunteer opportunities for the K-8 program fall into three main categories. Parents may choose to focus in one of these areas or across all:
Parents support students with their independent learning goals, work with small groups of children in the garden, assist specialists (Art, PE, STEM), and support classroom administrative tasks.
Integrated Learning Blocks (ILBs)
ILBs offer parents the chance to share their expertise, interests, and inspiration with kids in short “mini-classes”. Opportunities include teaching one or more sessions, assisting with sessions, and serving on the ILB Coordination Team.
Events, Programs and Activities
One-time events, core school programs, and occasional projects and enrichment activities that call upon parents’ interests and skills. These include everything from yearly outdoor education for each grade to fundraising to 6th and 8th grade graduation.
