Volunteering at PCK
A key part of our vibrant community at PCK is parent involvement. Volunteering is a great way to get to know other parents, catch a glimpse of the amazing things happening during the school day, and make an important contribution to the success of our school. Parent involvement is actually part of our charter, and every PCK family agrees to volunteer at least 20 hours (or donate $25/hour) by July 1 of each school year.
Ongoing volunteer opportunities are posted here, while others will be sent to you through Raptor based on the areas of interest you selected on your volunteer application. You can update your interests through Raptor at any time. If you ever have questions about volunteering at PCK, please contact our volunteer coordinator, Laura Parkes. You can find her at our front desk if you’d like to call or stop by with your questions; you will also see her when you check in to volunteer. Every family receives a quarterly update on the volunteer hours logged for the year, and Laura can help you with questions about this as well.
If you have not completed your volunteer application, please do so by clicking on this link and following the prompts.

Logging your Hours
Parents are responsible for logging their volunteer hours online. Our school Bond Rating and Charter Renewal evaluate our volunteer participation and request this data from us since it demonstrates our parents’ commitment to the long-term viability of the school.
When you check in as a volunteer at the front desk of the school, Raptor will automatically log your hours. Please ensure you log out when you complete your volunteer task. Volunteer hours completed outside of school can also be logged through Raptor. Simply log in to your Raptor account to add your hours.
