Parent Groups & Volunteer Opportunities

Thank You

Thank you so much for investing in Mile High Academy.  So many of the wonderful things at MHA only happen because you volunteer your time and gifts. We appreciate your partnership and look forward to creating the best place for our students to learn, explore and serve.

Room Parent

The room parent solicits donations from parents for classroom parties and events based on the needs of the class, collects money for teacher gifts during holidays and Teacher Appreciation Week in May, organizes classroom volunteers for events or enrichment and other tasks as decided by the teacher. Room parents are integral to the teacher’s classroom plan for the school year.

Parent Ambassador (PA)

A strong Parent Ambassador group increases engagement within the school by connecting families withing their grade level and participating in community events.

Parent Teacher Organization (PTO)

The Parent Teacher Organization is a school based group with a mission to make MHA  better place for our students to learn. Parents work together with the teachers to volunteer in classes, raise money for the school, and generally support our school-wide efforts. The PTO aids in teachers and parents coming together for the benefit of students.

Besides being a part of our PTO group, there are so many other ways you can volunteer at MHA. These opportunities vary depending on the event and can include:

Walk-A-Thon

  • getting donations, marking laps, meal prep and serving, handing out giveaways, set-up and take-down

Fall Festival

  • Decorating, manning the booth during the event, collecting tickets, clean-up

Classroom Parties, Guest Speaker & Classroom Support

  • Providing food, decorating, getting teacher-requested supplies, give a demonstration or share about your real-world experiences, chaperone events and provide classroom support

Schoolwide Decorating

  • Helping decorate for various holidays, creating an atmosphere of school spirit

Field Day

  • Help passing out water, run event stations, donate supplies

Teacher Appreciation & Snacks

  • Bring in snacks for the teachers and lend a head during Teacher Appreciation Week (1st week in May)

If you would like to volunteer – or maybe help out with a specific event – please reach out to Camie Freund, MHA’s PTO leader, at [email protected].
