Welcome Volunteers!

North Springfield Elementary School welcomes volunteers including parents, community members, and high school students. Volunteers provide a valuable resource of help to our school and our students. Opportunities include tutoring, mentoring students, assisting in our library as well as many critical behind the scenes tasks. If you or someone you know is interested in this valuable community service opportunity, call the school at (703) 658-5500 and ask for the how you can get involved.

The county states that all volunteers may be asked to provide a clear and current TB test or chest x-ray before they can begin working with the students.

FCPS Cares

FCPS Cares is an opportunity for parents, staff, and community members to recognize FCPS employees for going above and beyond to help others and show they care. We invite you to submit your story so we can all acknowledge the good work of FCPS employees.

Business and Community Partnerships

The Business and Community Partnerships office’s primary functions are to recruit and supports Ignite Partnerships, serve as a liaison to local Chambers of Commerce and other community organizations, help lead the annual Collect for Kids school supply drive, manage the FCPS Donations Portal for donated goods, and promote the Savings for Staff merchant discount program.

In the last decade, the Business & Community Partnerships team has helped secure over ten million dollars in donations of money and valued goods through partnerships and direct donations, not including the value of volunteer hours contributed by partners and mentors.

Parent Volunteers 

Volunteers are essential to the success of Fairfax County Public Schools. Many enriching and worthwhile experiences are afforded to our children through the volunteer help from parents. With this support, teachers are able to provide more direct instruction.

Parents interested in volunteering time and services are requested to contact the PTA volunteer coordinator and the classroom teacher. Please remember when you are coming to volunteer this is not a time that teachers are able to meet with you. If you have a concern that you wish to discuss with your child’s teacher please arrange a time for a meeting through e-mail or a phone call.

Volunteers are strongly discouraged from bringing younger children with them when volunteering. Volunteers bringing very young children with them are usually not able to adequately focus on the educational process for which they volunteered. There simply are too many distractions for them, for their very young children, as well as for our students, for much meaningful education to take place.

Confidentiality

As per Policy 2730.1: All employees and volunteers shall be expected to maintain personally identifiable student information, whether oral, written, or automated, in a confidential manner. Personally identifiable student information shall be disclosed within the school division only to individuals who have a legitimate educational interest and a bona fide need for access to the information. Such information shall not be otherwise disclosed within or outside the school division without appropriate consent or as otherwise authorized by law. For purposes of these requirements, volunteers shall be held to the same standards as are employees.
