Volunteering is at the very heart of our school.
Our commitment to volunteering helps keep the school running smoothly and is part of our school community agreements.
Share a High Five! Winterberry Families Plan to Volunteer at least 20 hours per child per school year. Remember to log your volunteer hours! It's so important. Our rock-solid volunteer participation keeps Winterberry strong and keeping track of hours helps us win grants.
It starts with your Classroom. Ask your Teacher how you can help contribute time and/or resources to classrooms, gatherings, event preparations and parent nights.
Get to know the other parents in your class:
Attend parent nights.
Participate in community rhythms
Attend events and Share your presence with us.
Contribute to annual fundraising efforts to support teacher training and other school programs and needs.
Does your classroom have WPG representation? If so, introduce yourself and offer what you can do. If not, why not Join Us?
Have a little more room to give this year?
Serve as an event chair or find a friend and co-chair together.
Take on or share smaller support positions that take much less time but create more cohesion and ease for the Event Chair:
Set-up, Decor & Clean Up
Want to help, but on your own schedule? Other year-long positions include:

Winter Faire 2020 Event Coordinator
Job Description: The Winter Fair Coordinator (or co-coordinators) initiate the event with email and phone coordination, delegates room activities to established Activity and Game coordinators.
Good to know: You would be the point of contact for general questions and will need to feel comfortable making decisions that benefit the school (with support from WPG leadership). It is easiest to begin planning in late November, with a light but specific list of tasks and work load as you get up to speed and gain commitments from past activity leads.
Contact us and let us know you're willing to help.
“Volunteers do not necessarily have the time; they just have the heart.” – Elizabeth Andrew
As you can imagine, event planning can be intense as it has lots of moving pieces and volunteers to figure out, so being organized and responsive really helps.
The work load ramps up in January depending on your delegation skills.
“How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world.” –Anne Frank
2020 Auction Team Members Needed
Job Description: The Auction Team Coordinator (or co-coordinators) initiate the event with email and phone coordination.
Our school Auction is a large but rewarding event that brings in a lot of love and support for our community and school.
Committed Team Members are KEY! We are so lucky to have some returning Team Members but we need a few more to spread the work around.
Good to know: Once the Venue and Food decisions are made (asap), it is all about Donations, Ticket Sales and Communicating our needs to the community. It is easiest to begin preliminary planning in late November/Early December to make the early decisions and set up the website so that the Auction is ready to launch after Winter Faire.
The work load is mostly tending to donations, making phone calls, communicating to the team. and encouraging ticket sales as we approach Auction Day.
