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 given 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:
Thanksgiving Turkey Trot Volunteers
Thanksgiving morning kicks off with one of the great NCA traditions – passing out water at the Naperville Turkey Trot 5K. This is a great way to serve our community – it’s fast-paced and fun! – and *BONUS* get some visibility for the school. We are looking for a few families to form our Turkey Trot crew!
When is it? Thanksgiving morning, 7-10 a.m.
Who can help? The whole family is welcome but we need at least 14 adults & teens 15+.
Do you get PEP credit? Of course! You’ll earn one PEP Unit 2 credit
All volunteers get a Turkey Trot shirt. Sign up by filling out the form below.
Class Art Projects for the Annual Silent Auction
Class art projects will be auctioned off at the World Fare, the largest fundraising event for NCA. 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, weaving, chess, 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.
To sign up for one of these jobs, or if you would like more information, please fill out the form below.
