Join us in volunteering at Miraloma!

Being involved in education is the number one thing parents and caregivers can do to create a great school and improve student performance!

It sends a powerful message to our children that their education is important and we are there to support them in whatever way we can. Whether you are only able to spend time once or twice throughout the year or multiple times a week, your efforts will be greatly appreciated.

Please take a moment to look at the different volunteer opportunities, so you can plan when and how you’d like to help:

  • Join the PTA and attend monthly meetings
  • Join or help out a PTA committee
  • Help out at any of the events Miraloma organizes throughout the year (during the week or in the weekend)
  • Give the teachers a hand in their class rooms
  • Come to the monthly School Site Council (SSC) meetings

Volunteer sign-up opportunities are announced throughout the year in the weekly newsletter (Dragon Digest), by your Room Parents, and on our school community Yahoo! Groups.


Classroom volunteering involves a range of duties and vary in time commitment. Please talk to your teacher or room parent about your classroom needs and scheduling.

  • Room parent(s): coordinate classroom volunteers, create/maintain classroom email/address list, and any other support for your child’s teacher.
  • Volunteer in the classroom on a regular basis (centers, library, art, etc).
  • Tutor students in reading and math after completing in a training session with our K-2 reading intervention teacher.
  • Auction classroom project coordinator: organize an auction donation for your class (art or other project with kids) to be sold at the school Auction.
  • Make copies for your child’s teacher.
  • Read to your child’s class or another class during their library time. Help re-shelve books.
  • Chaperone during recess on a regular basis or even once a month.
  • Yearbook Classroom Page Volunteer: put together a montage page for your child’s class for the yearbook.


Another way to volunteer at Miraloma is to join a committee and work on larger community projects for the school -- fundraisers, art projects, gardening, school communications, and more!
