Parent Involvement

Since the school's beginning in 1971, and founded by parents, McCarthy-Towne families have been actively involved in the school. The school employs a part-time office support employee, Kerry Lewis, who facilitates parent volunteering. She can be reached at [email protected]

All volunteers must have an approved CORI on file with the ABRSD. Complete the CORI form and bring it and your driver's license to Gabi Innella in the Main Office to start the process. CORIs are valid for 3 years and are renewed on a 3-year calendar basis, as opposed to a rolling basis. We have begun accepting CORIs for volunteering in the school for this new 3-year CORI cycle, 1/1/21-12/31/23.
