CMS requires that ALL volunteers register and get approved by the school system in order to be a volunteer at any CMS school. The process is quite simple and takes just a few minutes of your time. To register, please go to www.cmsvolunteers.com and follow the instructions. If you were registered last year, you will still need to renew your registration.
Register with your driver’s license and social security card or passport:
1. Go to www.cmsvolunteers.com
2. Click “New Volunteer”
3. Complete form. Do not forget to select “Endhaven Elementary” for your school.
You should receive an email confirmation within 48 hours. Your clearance will be “Unsupervised without driving.” This allows you to volunteer for any school activity and field trip.
If you use your passport for registration, you must present your passport to the front office staff before your clearance can be approved. Your clearance will be “Supervised without driving.” This allows you to volunteer for non-student related activities (filing, grading, bulletin boards, etc.). You cannot chaperone field trips or participate in activities that require contact with other students (reading to students, class coverage, Junior Achievement, etc.)
Interested in being more involved or do you have questions? Contact Kristen Aquino at email@example.com.
Contact Casey McNulty at firstname.lastname@example.org to get started.
