MVM VOLUNTEERS ROCK!!
Every year, the MVMPCS community is recognized by FCPS for the incredible number of hours our families have served.
During the 2018-2019 school year, that number was over 14,000 hours!
As a charter school, MVMPCS relies on volunteers to fill many of the essential functions of the school. Volunteers fill key roles in parent/school communication, building & grounds maintenance, and school governance, just to name a few.
In addition to helping to bridge the funding gap, volunteering at school helps to build a sense of community. Children watch everything you do. By giving back to the community, you’ll show them firsthand how volunteering makes a difference and how good it feels to help other people and enact change. It’s also a valuable way for you to get to know other families in the community!
MVMPCS relies on community members willing to share their professional expertise. Experience in architecture /construction or real estate law? The Building Search Committee could use your expert advice. Have a background in accounting or business? The MVMPCS Budget is prepared and managed by volunteers. Consider offering your professional services pro bono. Whatever your profession or skill might be, you can use it to give back to your community.
Two-parent/guardian households are asked to volunteer at least 30 hours each year; single-parent/guardian households are asked to give at least 10 hours.
HOW DO WE GIVE OUR TIME?New volunteer opportunities open frequently. We have a job for everyone!

Volunteer Hours Matter!
FCPS records our yearly volunteer hours and this information is shared with state and other grant-funding institutions, which makes it of vital importance as we qualify for grants.
We work together as a community and institution to recognize the importance of these reports. The Board of Education also looks at our volunteer hours as an indicator of community involvement when we submit our Annual Report or go before them for Charter Renewal.
