Volunteering at Aurora is a tradition that serves to build and sustain our community, model leadership and is an integral part of the Aurora experience. Research has shown that children do better academically and socially in schools where adult family member involvement is high.

Parents and families at Aurora School are valued and strongly encouraged to be involved in all aspects of the school. One popular way to do that is to take on volunteer responsibilities. We look forward to partnering with you in your child’s education.

Examples of volunteer opportunities

Addressing Envelopes

Assisting in the Classroom
