Volunteer Opportunities with RAP:

Ice Cream - The Ice Cream program is a fundraiser run by RAP volunteers. Parents may purchase an ice cream card which allows their child to have ice cream each Friday throughout the school year. Cards are $35 for elementary and middle school students.  

 Volunteer Needs:

  • Pass out ice cream each Friday. 
  • Ice cream coordinator – Ordering, monitoring inventory, classroom orders
  • Elementary ice cream distribution - filled

Staff Appreciation - Multiple events are held during the year to show our teachers and staff how much we appreciate all that they do. We host catered lunches and provide gifts and treats throughout the school year. In the spring, we recognize all staff during teacher appreciation week.

  • Staff appreciation coordinator (elementary and middle) – plan/set-up lunches, coordinate staff favorites list, plan treats and encouragements throughout the year, plan for staff appreciation week.
  • Volunteers to help implement lunches and ideas set up by the coordinator

Clothes Closet – The clothes closet is for those in need of gently used uniform items when we are in between uniform ordering periods. Parents will complete an online form requesting the items they need. Our clothes closet volunteers will pull those items from the closet and send home with the student. The clothes closet is stocked with uniform items donated by parents.

 Volunteer Needs:

  • Help organizing the closet at the Coordinator’s discretion
