NCA relies on its parents to help with weekly tasks, classroom projects, social gatherings, fundraising, special events, and community service. PEP was created to give parents the opportunity participate in the daily operation of the school, build relationships through volunteering in community, and strengthen the partnership between parents and the school. We are thankful for each parent who shares their time and talent in service to the school and to the Lord.
Here’s the “what you need to know” about PEP. Please read carefully:
Unit 1 – One School-Year-Long Volunteer Commitment
Unit 2 – Two Single Event Volunteer Commitments
Unit 3 – Attend 4 Parent Meetings
PEP requires every NCA family to complete each of the three units of participation each school year. Unit 3 is required of all families.
– Single parent families are required to fulfill Unit 3 plus Unit 1 –or– Unit 2.
– Doubling up Unit 2 (participating in “4 single event volunteer commitments”) will exempt parents from Unit 1.
– Tripling up Unit 1 (participating in “3 school-year long volunteer commitments”) will exempt parents from Unit 2.
– Membership on the NCA Board of Directors or a board sub-committee fulfills the Unit 1 requirement.
Families are give a list of open jobs in the months leading up to the beginning of the school year. Parents are more than welcome to sign up for as many positions as they feel led to. First come, First serve.
The following opportunities need volunteers:
Class Art Projects for the Annual Silent Auction – Four Co-Coordinators Wanted!
Class art projects will be auctioned off at the World Fare, this year’s largest fundraising event for NCA, on March 21st. These projects are our best sellers! Past volunteers have enjoyed working with the students and helping them to create one-of-a-kind treasures that one lucky family will take home as a lasting memory of the year. Volunteers will coordinate crafting times with the classroom teachers.
Seasonal Logic School Elective Leaders
Every quarter, the Logic School students are offered two electives to participate in. These electives are held once per week – one on Tuesday afternoons and one on Fridays afternoons. They are meant to be enriching activities but also to give the students a “brain break” from their studies. Past electives include: typing, sewing, etiquette, cooking, pilates, geo-caching, small home maintenance & repair. If you have a skill or hobby you’d be willing to teach to 6th-8th graders one hour a week for 9 weeks, please fill out the form below.
Turkey Trot 5K Water Table
Thursday, 11/28/2019 – 6:00-9:30 am
Corner of South Lane and Plainfield-Naperville Road, Naperville
For the past several years, NCA has had the honor of manning the one and only water table for the Turkey Trot 5K hosted by the Naperville Noon Lions, which raises money to support children and families with hearing and vision problems, and diabetes. Volunteers set up tables, fill cups with water and pass them out to thousands of runners as they race by. It all happens swiftly so it’s a small time commitment that’s a big help to the community! Fun fellowship and community service are a great way to start Thanksgiving Day.
