The NMIS Family Handbook states:
NMIS highly encourages parent/guardian involvement on campus. In fact, volunteerism is an expectation. This simply isn’t a school where you can drop your child off and not be “part of the family.” We are a community in the fullest sense of the word, and as such need to pull together to get all the things done that are necessary. Please be sure to read the section “Promoting Equity in Family Participation.”
5. Track Your Time
To keep track of the volunteerism, the School requests that all families keep track of and report their time. The School is known to use this information to provide special incentives, like better seats at the violin concerts and first pick at times for parent-teacher conferences.
6. Donations in Place of Volunteer Hour Expectations
If you would like to make a donation in place of your volunteer hour expectations, you can make it to NMISF. The donation rate is $25 per hour of volunteer time.
You must enter your NMIS Family ID # when you make your donation, so that it can be tracked and credited towards your volunteer hour expectations.
