Volunteer With Us
Our Brownsville community benefits enormously from the events and programs our parent volunteers help provide and facilitate. Realizing that not everyone has the same availability, interests, or talents, there are MANY ways that YOU can serve as a volunteer and we welcome what you are able to offer!
Brownsville joins other schools in Albemarle County in working to keep school and student safety a focus. The Volunteer Registration and Code of Ethics forms need to be turned into the BES front office. The County also requires a copy of a valid photo ID. The Brownsville office staff will be happy to photocopy your ID when you come in. Every Brownsville volunteer will need to have these forms complete before volunteering at Brownsville.
We are the Brownsville Bees
As Brownsville Bees, our entire school embraces the Bee concept (e.g., hives, colonies, worker bees, etc). Just as honeybees are fascinating and social insects engaged in multitude of complex tasks that depend on the efforts of the entire colony to survive; our PTO and parent volunteers function the same way. Therefore we structure our PTO terminology around this concept.
There may be other opportunities to volunteer in your child’s classroom, however the duties and frequencies of these needs are teacher dependent. Historically, there are more opportunities in the lower grades (K-2) than in the higher grades (3-5) and any interests should be discussed with your child’s teacher.
