2019-2020 Community Classroom Connections Volunteer Signup

In partnership with Westside Elementary School, the Foundation is excited to begin our second year of the Community Classroom Connections program.  There are two goals for this program:

  • To develop a group of knowledgeable advocates for public education in Demopolis, grounded in the realities of a 2019 classroom experience
  • To connect the students in the classroom with a community member they can get to know

What is involved?

Each volunteer will be partnered with a classroom teacher at Westside Elementary (K-2) for the school year. 

  • At minimum, the community member is asked to attend one classroom lesson each quarter.
  • They are also encouraged to come for lunch, attend programs, or engage in other ways in the classroom as time and opportunity allow. 
  • Each quarter, a short article will be emailed to the participants and teachers about an education topic to help build their knowledge about the field and provide a discussion topic.
  • Participants of the program will be honored with their classes at awards day in May.
