Parent Involvement

One of the many things that makes the Soldier Hollow Charter School experience so unique for your children is the parent involvement. On any given day at Soldier Hollow there are many dedicated parents volunteering to help your children excel and be the best that they can be.

  • Volunteers are an integral and critical part of our successful running of the School. Parent commitment is vital and we so appreciate all that our parents do to make our programs very successful.
  • Families are encouraged to be involved in their children’s education and volunteer in or out of the classroom.  There are many ways parents may help such as at school with lunch or recess duty, driving on field trips, sitting on committees that play a vital role at our school, help organize fundraisers, help with our website and so much more. Volunteer Hours may be logged in at the home page of our website, under the link “Parent Log Hours”, or here.
  • Parents are expected to get their children to school on time.
  • It is appreciated if you call and notify the school when your children are or will be absent.
  • Parents must sign their children in and out if they are coming in late or leaving early.  We do this through our CCSS computer in the main office.
  • Parents are expected to check-in to the office before entering a classroom.  We value instruction and interruptions take away from the learning and pull all students off task.
