“Volunteer 5 Times”
Eagle Ridge Academy views parents and students as integral contributors and active participants in our school. The Academy is most successful when parents and students work together with the teachers and staff to create and sustain the best possible learning environment.
“I can no other answer make, but, thanks, and thanks.” ~ William Shakespeare

In addition to the many ways parents are expected to regularly support their children’s
academic achievement, we also ask every Eagle Ridge Academy family to “Give Us 5” with
a pledge to volunteer 5 times throughout the school year.
All volunteers are required to do the following before volunteering with students:
- Complete a background check. In order to volunteer to work with students K-12, you will need to complete a background check.
- When you come to the school, sign in and sign out using our Volunteer “Sign in/Sign out” system that is located at the reception entrances.
- You will receive a “Volunteer” badge to wear while you are volunteering at the school.
Please see MN Statute 123B.03 for details.
