Parent Volunteer Hours


Are you on track to complete your 20 parent volunteer hours?


At TMALS we request that all of our families serve 20 volunteer hours for the year.  The hours align with our mission statement, "It Takes a Village to Raise a Child."  As members of the TMALS village raising an amazing group of children together, families can attend workshops, events, trips and perform other in kind services to benefit the school community.  Please make sure to sign the Volunteer Log Book in the main office everytime you volunteer so you will get credit for your hours.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION

OUR ELT EXTENDED DAY PROGRAM IS IN FULL SWING.  ALL STUDENTS ARE EXPECTED TO ATTEND DAILY.  DISMISSAL IS AT 5:15 PM.  YOU MAY CONTACT OUR ELT SITE DIRECTOR ASATIRA LENARD AT alenard@tmals.org WITH ANY QUESTIONS OR CONCERNS.  ELT IS A VALUABLE TIME WHERE STUDENTS GET INCREASED INSTRUCTIONAL TIME WITH THEIR TEACHERS, TIME FOR HANDS ON PROJECTS AND PARTICIPATION IN CLUBS SUCH AS AFRICAN DRUMMING, WEST AFRICAN DANCE, STEP TEAM, VIOLIN, YOGA, STEM, SCIENCE CLUB, SPORTS AND MORE.

EARLY PICKUPS WILL BE STRONGLY DISCOURAGED THIS YEAR SO WE CAN MAINTAIN THE VALUE OF OUR PROGRAM AND AVOID INTERRUPTIONS TO THE CHILDREN AND THEIR TEACHERS.  




MESSAGE TO ALL FAMILIES:


ALL STUDENTS ARE EXPECTED TO PARTICIPATE IN EXPANDED LEARNING TIME.  WE CONSIDER OUR ELT PROGRAM PART OF OUR SCHOOL DAY.


PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE REFRAIN FROM THE EARLY PICKUPS DURING ELT.  ELT ENDS AT 5:15 PM.  PLEASE DO NOT COME BEFORE THAT TO PICK UP YOUR CHILD UNLESS THERE IS AN EMERGENCY. IT IS DISRUPTIVE TO THE STUDENTS AND TEACHERS WHO ARE IMMERSED IN LESSONS. THIS IS A HIGH QUALITY PROGRAM.
