Volunteering

Volunteer Opportunities

We LOVE our Volunteers! The Galileo School thrives because of the wonderful support we have from our volunteers. We need more of you.

VOLUNTEER POLICY 

Our philosophy dictates that it is important for students to observe their parents volunteering and as part of their educational process. However, we do recognize that sometimes conditions exist that might require an additional source other than the parent to help with the acquisition of the mandatory volunteer hours. In an effort to be supportive, Galileo will allow parents to enlist other members of their own families to help provide their volunteer service. Family members may include grandparents, aunts and uncles, and similar. Families may not “gift” another family with excess hours over their volunteer hour minimum, nor may a parent provide volunteer service on behalf of another family.

Parents must volunteer at least 20 hours per child or a minimum of 30 hours per family who have multiple children. The deadline for completing all volunteer requirements is June 30 of the respective year. Families that do not comply with this policy are subject to sanctions up to and including disenrollment for the following academic year.

Parents and community members are encouraged to help out at the school. Everyone who wants to volunteer must register via the SCPS Dividends registration site at: https://dvd.scps.k12.fl.us/

Our current, most pressing needs are lunch time help and morning/afternoon car line.  Here is the link where you can sign up to volunteer for any of these events:
