    Volunteer Information

    We at Sun Valley Middle School recognize the immense value parents play in the life of their child’s education.  Effective school’s research states that an active parent plays a pivotal role in a child’s success in the continual schooling process.  We also value the position that active, supportive parents serve as one of the keys to success for the total school program. Many parents ask how they can make contributions and provide assistance at school.  Volunteering time and service is one of the greatest benefits for all at Sun Valley Middle.  Not only does volunteer service allow added support for all faculty and staff, but it allows the parents opportunity to interact with the school’s learning environment.

    In order to encourage parent and community involvement while assuring the safety of the children Union County Public Schools employs a screening policy for school volunteers.  In addition to protecting our students, the screening will also help identify individuals who pose an unacceptable risk to the students, the school district, and the members of the community. 

    By serving as a volunteer, parent and community members make an effort to improve the educational opportunities for the students.  From the media center to assisting individual classroom teachers, there is a place for the talents of all parents and community members at Sun Valley Middle School! 

    Why not join us today in helping to sustain excellence at Sun Valley Middle?  Your presence would make a difference in the life of our school!
