Volunteer Engagement and Employment
Parent involvement is a requirement for those enrolled at Mosaic Academy. We are a small learning community who are interdependent on each other for success in our educational endeavors. We as a staff partner with you in the education of your children and we need your help and input. This isn’t a place where you merely drop your students off for the day—your gifts and talents are valued and necessary at our school. There is so much we can do together!
We need parents with artistic abilities to help us decorate our hallways and organize bulletin boards, we need parents with technical expertise to help our classrooms excel in the use of technology. We need gardeners to sponsor gardening projects. Please let us know what you can contribute.
Our staff loves craft days where parents and grandparents prepare special projects for the student body to do together! Bring your ideas! We saw the beauty of this over Christmas, and Valentine’s Day and Easter last year—the students had a great time with some of our parents and grandparents enjoying some play and craft time.
We do require that each family join in our community fundraising activities. We offer fundraisers to help provide the “extras” for our teachers and classrooms, and to help our school meet general budget needs. In previous years, we were able to purchase classroom necessities such as a new playspace fence, ipads, bean bag chairs, play space items, and many more things for our students to use! We would like to add further technology to our school this year as well as well as grow our play space!
Parents are welcome to visit our classes. Please feel free to contact the teachers or director as special situations or problems arise. The value of communication between parents and teachers cannot be overstated. We welcome your involvement in the classrooms and appreciate your thoughts and suggestions.
Please volunteer for our special events, field trips, and class parties. Our success depends on help from each of our school’s parents. Please be available to your child’s teacher. Your presence in our school helps us succeed.
If you would like to plan a field trip for your student’s class, please contact your child’s teacher. He or she will be happy to help coordinate such an event for the students.
We are very interested in having guest speakers come and share with our students during the course of the school year. If you have a speaker that you would like to bring to our student body, please speak with the administrator and he or she can assist you in coordinating the event.
As mentioned in previous sections there are many specific tasks that we need your help to accomplish. On your school list you will find the top section to list quarterly community school supplies. To help the school cover the community costs of supplies, we request that each family contribute these community items each quarter. We will send a reminder each quarter with the list!

School-wide Family Volunteer Work Day
We have two school-wide work family volunteer days per year. One in August and one in the Spring where we ask parents to come up to the school for a school-wide family volunteer work day. We complete necessary building projects, update classrooms as needed, paint, etc… It is very necessary to the upkeep of our school and we ask all families to participate with us as we grow our school. We need dads especially involved year to year, as much of the work is heavy lifting, construction, and electrical work.
Mosaic Academy Fundraising
As a private school, we rely heavily on the generosity of others in order to provide excellent educational programs for our school. To maintain our reasonable tuition costs, we must raise funds from other sources during the school year. We do accept donations from businesses, and others. We need parents to help us approach area businesses about partnering with us on a consistent basis.
Fall Festival/Silent Auction: Community-wide Fall Festival/Silent Auction! We ask parents to help us collect donations for us to auction. This has been a major fundraiser for the school in previous years and we look forward to next year’s event.
Equal Exchange: Winter fundraiser – we receive 40% from every fair trade purchase.
