Parent Hours

Star Academy 2023-2024 Parent Hours

Volunteer Log for 23-24

Natomas Charter School was created as a means of providing parents and students with an expanded choice in the types of educational opportunities available. The school is founded on the belief that active parental involvement in the school's program is the key component to student success. Because the charter's mission is to provide unique learning opportunities to its students, the school needs committed parents who are willing to assist the staff and faculty in making this happen. 


To this end, Star Academy asks that all families contribute to our established school wide goal of 15,000 family contribution hours for the 2023-2024 school year (an average participation of 30 hours per family) and 100% family participation. 


Parents' active participation is one of the main ingredients that makes our academy successful. The parent commitment can be fulfilled in many fun and enjoyable ways. Hours can be completed one at a time or in larger increments for a single event or fundraiser. The following is a sample of the many ways parents can contribute to our school-wide goal:


  • Assistance in the classroom: bulletin boards, organization of materials, working with students
  • Participation in school events: Back to School Night, Welcome Back Picnic, Jog-a-thon, Open House, Family Math Night, Family Dance, Family STEAM Night, Big Day of Giving, etc. 
  • Supervising/ Chaperoning school events and extracurricular activities: field trips, Family Dance, run an enrichment class/ club
  • Donations (financial or supplies): classroom donations $35, tissue boxes, baby wipes, etc.
    • Financial donations are credited at $15 per hour

Star Academy also encourages families to support their students' learning in these general ways:

  • Maintain contact with school/teacher
  • Read with your child
  • Visit educational places your child can learn
  • To support our fundraising goals, please make checks payable to NAEF and write "fundraising" in the memo section. Thank you for supporting our school!
