Hello Ames Families-

If you are planning on volunteering at Ames Elementary School or visiting your child's classroom for any reason during the school year, you must have a Volunteer Information Form and Waiver of Liability on file in the main office.

This form is required, but is not limited to entering the school for the following reasons: to be a mystery reader, classroom volunteer, attend a classroom party, to assist with fun lunch, etc.

If you are planning on being in the school for any reason, you must have a Volunteer Information Form and Waiver of Liability on file in the office.

This form needs to be completed annually by our families.

I am attaching a form for you to print out and drop off at the Ames office. We will also have hard copies available at the front counter.

Thank you for your cooperation.
