There’s a place for everyone at Teller. One of the many strengths of Teller is parent involvement in our school. Parents are not simply needed at Teller, you are VITAL to our success.
The great thing about volunteering for Teller is that you can choose where to put your talents, treasure, and/or time to use, and you can choose how much you would like to give. Even if you are interested in a large event, you can choose to be a small part of it. EVERY BIT HELPS.
Please consider taking time for Teller now or in the coming year. You will meet other parents, be engaged, and make a HUGE difference in your child’s school. Volunteering builds community and IT. IS. FUN!
Some ways that you can become involved:
Please be sure to check in at the Main Office to sign in and pick up a visitor’s badge any time you are in the building helping our scholars so you can be identified as a volunteer with appropriate clearance. All visitors, including parents, must sign in and out when in the building for the safety of our scholars. If you plan on volunteering regularly, you can pick up an background check form at the Teller Office to receive your VERY OWN Teller Volunteer badge!
Teller Backpack Program has been providing Teller students with a backpack full of nutritional food every Friday over the past 3 years to those students who may otherwise go hungry over the weekend and holidays. The donations of this food come from the Food Bank of the Rockies, the Congress Park Community, and Teller Parent contributions. This year the Backpack Friends are currently helping 50 people per weekend.
You can contact Sandy Parker, Cynthia Godoy or Amy Morawa for more information. Check in with the Teller office for their contact information.
If you don’t have time, but would still like to help: donate. Fresh fruit and vegetable donations are accepted on Friday mornings and can be dropped at the front desk. We are also accepting cash and check donations made out to the Teller PTA with Backpack Friends in the memo line. There is a bin outside of the gym where you can drop off donations of non-perishable food items (lightweight and easy to carry, as our elementary students are hauling these home).
