Many opportunities are listed below!
A volunteer is many things; an extra pair of hands, an extra measure of individual attention for a needy child, an extra pair of ears for listening and a vital link between the school and home. Volunteers are one of the most valuable assets at LFCA; their time is highly valued and greatly appreciated. Volunteers are special because they provide and extra resource for the enrichment of all and serve as an example of service for our community, school, and church.
God gave each of us different gifts. Some of us were given the gift of financial management. Some of us have been given gifts of discernment. Others have been given gifts of compassion and patience. Whatever gift God has given, we hope you can find an opportunity to use it here at Little Flock Christian Academy.
“Serve wholeheartedly, as if you were serving the Lord, not men” – Ephesians 6:7
Volunteer opportunities are available daily and some evenings times will be made available as the need arises. Volunteer hours can be met through activities such as:
- Field Trips – if you are asked to supervise children besides your own. Attending with your own children, a relative or friend is not considered supervising.

- Fall Festival – set up, working booths, clean up, helping with donations and things needed prior to the event.
- Designated Homeroom Parents – you will automatically receive your volunteer hours.

Note: Service times required by athletic teams such as cleaning up after a game, and 8th-grade spring trip fundraising events do not count toward the 10 hours of volunteer work for the school.
If you wish to opt-out of the mandatory volunteer hours you can do so by paying a fee. Please contact Tena in the office.

Room parents are an invaluable resource at LFCA. In this role, you are an important part of many of the activities, events, and programs that make our school such a special place! Your help is greatly appreciated by the LFCA families. As a Room Parent, you have made a big commitment and we thank you for volunteering in our PTF! While taken very seriously, Room Parent responsibilities are a fun and rewarding experience for you, your child, teacher and entire classroom. Being a Room Parent enables you to be involved in your child’s educational experience and build relationships with other families. Room parents coordinate communication between individual teachers and families by collecting parents emails and phone numbers within their class and sending out information. They work together to encourage parent involvement in volunteer opportunities. The room parents coordinate volunteer opportunities within the classrooms, help communicate teacher expectations, help to gather chaperone’s for field trips and help interested parents coordinate on optional classroom gift for the teacher for birthdays, Christmas etc. They are responsible for planning and coordinating classroom parties and other activities with their teacher. They try their best to make everyone feel involved. Room parents communicate a positive message to the parents about Volunteering. Room parents coordinate with the PTF president and Vice-president about items the teachers’ needs in their classrooms. You are our eyes and ears. Room Parents help coordinate volunteers for their class booth for Fall Festival, Coordinate basket theme ideas, and collection of basket donations for the dance and auction. Room Parents are called upon during the school year to help with activities when needed. Room Parents are wonderful and the teachers appreciate the help.
Please be aware if you sign up to be a room parent you must be able to work with your teacher and complete your responsibilities. In past years we have had people sign up to be room parents and not be able to help their teachers. :) We are working hard this year to make sure your teacher communicates needs with each room parent. Please let us know if you would like to be a room parent next year for your students class. Your hours will automatically be fulfilled.
