The Walpole Village School encourages the participation of our parents in school activities. In fact, we strongly believe that in order for our children to thrive in their educational environment, parents a critical component to success.

We encourage parents to get involved and are eager to talk to parents about ways they can help drive the direction of the school and of their child's education. Some ways in which we seek parental involvement is:

  • Special guests as part of school curriculum: We are always looking for people to come talk to the students about their jobs, backgrounds, skills and experiences as they relate to our weekly themed curriculum. 
  • Field Trip chaperons and drivers: We encourage parents to join us on any of our educational field trips.
  • Events volunteers: In order to meet budget, the Walpole Village School hosts a number of fundraising events and we are always looking for extra hands. 
  • Spread the word: Word of mouth is one of the best ways to let others know about our gem of a school. Please help spread the word by sharing Facebook posts, posting signs or talking about our programs. And, you get a savings when you refer a family. Learn more about our Family Referral Policy.
  • Board of Directors or Committee members: As a not-for-profit organization, the Walpole Village School needs the support of a volunteer board and the support of additional members as committee members. 
  • Cleaning, Recycling and other tasks: We love when parents help us keep up the school and take our trash and recycling to the dump.

Please sign up to for any of these activities. If you have other ways you'd like to be involved, please contact Jody Metcalf, our director. We'd love to hear from you.
