All volunteers wishing to serve in an Okaloosa County school must submit a Volunteer Application which should be completed before a volunteer is allowed to interact with students. The Volunteer Application is required each year, even if you have volunteered at Plew before.
Got a green thumb? Have some time to weed or plant? You can be a Plew Planter! Many volunteer hours are spent keeping our school grounds looking beautiful. Every garden spot is adopted by a family who voluteers to keep that area green and growing. From the Magic TreeHouse reading area, to the Amphtheater, to the reading benches, Plew Planters make our school a great place to learn and grow.
The Hospitality Committee is responsible for several events throughout the year. This committee is perfect for all levels of commitment! You can provide snacks (homemade or store-bought) when requested or help with set-up, execution and/or clean-up of events. For more information visit their Facebook group – Plew Hospitality Committee.
Each classroom benefits greatly from the involvement of the students’ parents. A Room Parent works closely with the classroom teacher coordinating special events during the year. They are the connection between the teacher and the rest of the parents when planning for parties, field trips, etc. It is not a huge investment of time but they need to enjoy organizing people and events. Please volunteer with your child’s teacher.
Ask your child's teacher if there are other volunteer opportunties with your child's class. Parents are always welcome to help with parties, field trips, and other classroom events. If you can't make it to school during the school day, maybe you can help at home. Just ask your teacher what needs to be done!
Plew's annual showcase of the artwork your children create during the school year is amazing! Each classroom has marvelous displays of student art in its own gallery. Hundreds of guests come out to purchase special items produced by the classes for sale in the Gallery Store, and to bid on the incredible items in our Silent Auction.
The classrooms work together to produce major masterpieces. Evening of the Arts is not only educational and fun, it also helps us raise thousands of dollars to use for enhancing our students' educational experience at Plew! Our success, as always, is due to the support of our wonderful parents and community. The art volunteers and room parents devote countless hours to making our Evenings so successful.
