The teachers, staff, and students appreciate every volunteer! Whether you are in the classroom once a week, once a year, or even if you can only help at home. Before you donate your time to support the education of our INDY Eagles, please read through our Volunteer Code of Conduct to ensure we adhere to all school, district, and state guidelines and create the safest and most supportive learning environment possible.
To volunteer in your child's classroom, please contact your classroom teacher. Classroom volunteer opportunities vary depending on teacher need.
If you are going to be your classroom's room parent, please familiarize yourself with the room parent handbook.
To volunteer on a full-school level, please contact the main office. We have a number of projects that could use support including campus beautification, teacher appreciation, and main-office support.
The school site council (SSC) is an elected group of parents, teachers and additional school employees. The primary goal of the SSC is to work with the principal to develop, recommend for approval, monitor, evaluate, and update the Single Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA).
