Whether you have 30 minutes a month, or 10 hours a week, your time spent volunteering with Fort Collins Montessori School is time put to good use. Volunteers help keep administrative costs down while developing a greater sense of community among families. Additionally, volunteering is a great way to teach children about the importance of service and supporting the school.
Below is a list of current volunteer opportunities. If you’re interested in a task that you don’t see listed below, or if you have any questions, contact [email protected].
Note that if you are working at the school during school hours you’re required to complete Volunteer Training and a full background check. Contact Ashley Lang at [email protected] for details or click here to view our volunteer policy page.

PARENT VOLUNTEER COMMITTEE
PVC raises money for community building and staff appreciation efforts, including money to fund continuing education for our teachers and gifts for birthdays and holidays.

If you’re interested contact PVC at [email protected].
SCHOOL ACCOUNTABILITY COMMITTEE
Two to three committee members needed – one from the Fort Collins community and one FCMS parent. The purpose of the School Accountability Committee (SAC) is to inform, encourage and provide opportunities for parents and community members to be involved in the planning and evaluation of FCMS’s instructional program and quality improvement processes. This group meets quarterly. If interested, contact Lorie Federman [email protected].
