Volunteering

PM Wells Charter Academy requires families to volunteer 20 hours of their time during the school year. They have many opportunities to volunteer their time at school. This may include working in the classrooms; assisting with fundraisers and special events; attending workshops and PTC meetings; helping in the cafeteria and library media center; participating on a field trip; and purchasing items for the classroom or school.

Volunteer Information

Volunteers are needed every day at PM Wells Charter Academy in both the elementary and middle school locations. Please ask your child’s teacher about opportunities he/she has for you OR come by our office. We will always find someplace where your skills will benefit the teachers and students of our school.

Here is a list of SOME of the things you can volunteer to do.:

  • Sort Lost & Found at middle school level (quarterly)
  • Change Bulletin Boards (should be updated by 1st of each month)
  • Decorate the buildings for the holidays (set up and remove)
  • Stuff and Stamp envelopes for Main Office
  • Set-up, chaperone, and clean-up at each dance
  • Assist in the Media Center
  • Sort mail and deliver to teacher mailboxes.
  • Set-up and clean-up at Honor Roll Assemblies(quarterly)

All parents must complete the Volunteer form and must be screened by Osceola County before volunteering at the school. The online Volunteer Form is available at https://volunteer.osceola.k12.fl.us/. Once you have received confirmation of your registration via email, please bring a copy of your confirmation to the office for your volunteer file.

Parent Teacher Committee (PTC)

PMWCA PTC coordinates the fundraisers and family events at the school. Some events include book fairs, festivals, and dances. They do require volunteers to help make these events a success. PTC also holds several fundraisers throughout the year to earn extra money for the teachers and classrooms so that they may have the opportunity to get items that they normally would not receive and some fundraisers give students the chance to reduce the cost of their yearly field trips. The PTC is a great forum for any parent that wants to be involved in their child’s education and help raise money for the “little extras”. Volunteer hours can also be met by attending the PTC meetings once a month.
