We appreciate our volunteers. You give countless hours of your free time to make sure JM has a variety of programs and activities. Now, we need your help to ensure that our campus is safe. We can't do it without you.
The Moraga School District's Student Safety Committee, comprised of school staff, parents and community members, has developed a new volunteer program to improve the safety of all persons on our campuses.
All school volunteers are required to complete the following and turn in the required documents at registration in August:
1) watch a safety video
2) complete a brief quiz based on the video
3) complete a volunteer application form
4) present a photo identification
We encourage volunteers to begin completing this process, and in order to facilitate this process prior to registration in August, the "Volunteer" web page includes several dates and times for District staff to immediately process your application. Appointments are not necessary during the dates and time listed on the web page. The District office is located at 1540 School Street, across the street from the old Post Office. Volunteer applications will not be processed at school sites.
Volunteers are thanked in advance for supporting the District to improve school safety.
Parent Volunteers Needed for Lunch Supervision
We created an additional opportunity for parents to volunteer at Joaquin Moraga. We are in need of 3-4 parents each day to supervise students at lunch in various places on campus, such as the pavilion, basketball courts, fields and quad area. One of our district and school goals is student safety and increasing student supervision is vital. Research shows high rates of positive contact with students can be expected to significantly reduce student problem behavior for up to 90% of all students. If interested, please sign up at: www.SignUpGenius.com/go/30E0F44A9A82DA31-weneed.
