Volunteer 5 Times“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.

“Volunteering is the ultimate exercise in democracy. You vote in elections once a year, but when you volunteer, you vote every day about the kind of community you want to live in.” ~ Author Unknown

ERA Volunteer Day – Third Wednesday of the Month

Join our ERA community the third Wednesday of each month for Volunteer Day.  On Volunteer Day we will join efforts at school and from home.  These efforts will support our teachers, classrooms, and students by performing tasks that build a stronger Eagle Ridge Academy. Please use the comments section to let us know if your availability is limited during the designated time period.

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 five 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.

Click here to send your name, e-mail address, birth date, driver’s license number, and what you are volunteering for to the Director of Development. She will connect you via email with “Trusted Employees,” our online background check company, with instructions for completing their online form.
