ODYSSEY PARENT PARTICIPATION GROUP
The Odyssey Parent Participation Group is the primary forum for parents to become involved in school-wide committees. The group works hand-in-hand with teachers and school administration to develop innovative programs and provide support for those programs. The group continues to investigate new ways to build community and bring parents together. Group committees include
- Arts Committee-focus is to support learning in and through the arts with programs and classroom support
- Fundraising Committee-organizes the various fundraising events throughout the year to support student learning programs
- Community Building Committee-organizes events to build community
- Room Parents- support classroom teachers and classroom needs
Our Parent Participation Groups focus on building strong parent communities that support the mission, vision, and values of the school through fundraising, events, and volunteering. We invite everyone to join us for our monthly meetings and learn of the many ways parents make Odyssey a great place to be!
Volunteering is our core belief of inclusivity in action and an opportunity to foster partnerships in our school community. We believe that inclusivity provides a better future for our children and our society requires the interconnection of many points of view, beliefs, languages, ethnicities, cultures, backgrounds and experiences.
Ways to Get Involved
We encourage parents/guardians, family members, friends and community members to share their time, knowledge and abilities with our students by joining their campus’s parent participation group. OPPG offers many opportunities to participate in your student’s education, meet other families, and volunteer your time.
There are also several opportunities to volunteer on campus by chaperoning events and field trips, serving as a Room parent, or collaborating with Teachers to provide students with outside educational experiences such as cultural celebrations or music lessons.
The Volunteer handbook is designed to provide you with information and requirements that will assist you in your volunteer experience. If you have any questions or concerns not addressed in this handbook or at the required volunteer orientation, please feel free to call our office.
