Volunteer with Us

As we have started the year remotely, there are changing guidelines and protocols for what volunteering looks like in our school community.

Please see below for the current CPS  guidelines and an approval process for all individuals looking to volunteer in the school and for the various opportunities.

Please click here for an overview of the process.

ABC parent group has merged with Friends of Tubman (FOT)

Last year, our parent group (ABC) and FOT merged into one cohesive organization in order to instill a strong parent community presence during the last couple of challenging years. The mission of our parent group has remained the same: to act as a support system and source of information for parents; to encourage and facilitate greater parent involvement and volunteering; to maintain a channel for parent input to school policies; and to provide support for our great teachers.

Stay tuned for updates about virtual meetings and events.

Room Parents

Each classroom has a room parent, which is a critical piece of building community within a classroom and as a school. Room parents are usually selected prior to the start of the new school year.

Room parents work directly with the teacher on a number of classroom activities, events, and projects. Please reach out directly to your teacher if interested in serving as a room parent.

Friends of Tubman (FOT)

FOT is an all-volunteer organization that needs help from many parent volunteers throughout the year to plan, organize, and manage various events and fundraising efforts. Volunteers are needed to:

  • Identify and contact potential sponsors
  • Organize and manage events
  • Set-up and clean-up
  • Manage ticket and concession sales
  • Take on other duties and projects as needed

Please contact Patti Lenkov for more information on FOT.
