The Media Center is always looking for volunteers to help out in the media center. We have several hundred students and staff that visit us each week for book exchange, research and class lessons. We can always use more smiling faces and helping hands!
Our parent volunteers do a variety of tasks. They supervise material check-in and check-out, shelve books, assist students as they search for books and work on projects/research, or create displays.
If this is your first time volunteering, please email Mrs. Vahle after looking at the SignUp and plan to shadow another veteran volunteer. I do have to keep the office advised of new volunteers.
A copy of the Media Specials schedule and letter day calendars are available under the Parent Volunteers button in Mrs. Vahle's Canvas Course.
All volunteers must have a criminal history background check done prior to volunteering at school. If you are a new volunteer, please make certain you have a completed Criminal History Background Check on file. If you have multiple students who attend multiple schools in Carmel, you only need one criminal background check. Your student's school administration will be contacted when the criminal background report is complete.
Carmel Clay Schools requires all visitors to check in using our visitor management system. When visitors enter a school building, they are required to scan their driver’s license or state identification card for a check of their record and then wear a badge issued by the system while in the school. As our visitors leave the school, they scan and return that badge to front office staff.
Watch this short video put together by some of our district's SROs to illustrate how to check in as a visitor and/or pick your child up early from school.
