Volunteer to help at JGMES


Did you know that volunteering at your child's school can provide a lifetime of benefits to your child, their school and even you?

You can serve many different roles in the educational process: , helpers in the classroom, advocates for your children, volunteers, fundraisers, boosters and more. The more parents participate in a sustained way at each of these levels, the better for student achievement.

Research* shows that when parents are involved in their children's education, the children are more likely to:

  • earn better grades.
  • score higher on tests.
  • pass their classes.
  • attend school regularly.
  • have better social skills.
  • show improved behavior.
  • be more positive in their attitude toward school.
  • complete homework assignments.
  • graduate and continue their education.
  • Schools with involved parents enjoy:
  • better morale among teachers.
  • higher ratings of teachers by parents.
  • more support from families.
  • a better reputation in the community.
  • When parents become involved in their children's education, the parents are more likely to:
  • be more confident at school.
  • be more confident in themselves as parents and their ability to help their children learn.
  • be held in higher esteem by teachers and have teachers expect more from their children.
  • enroll in continuing education to advance their own schooling.
  • Volunteering in Wake County Public Schools

The WCPSS volunteer registration system is open each day of the school year. You may register at any WCPSS school; however, registration will not work on a home computer. You will not hear anything back from WCPSS unless there is a problem with your registration. 

The following examples illustrate some volunteer duties that require registration:

Overnight field trips, tutoring inside or outside the classroom, extended out-of-school activities, off-campus mentoring, field trip chaperone, dance chaperone, club sponsor, health room assistant, volunteer coach, clerical work for teacher, media center volunteer, classroom assistant, field day volunteer, test proctor, front office helper, room parent.

About Registering at Jeffreys Grove

  • All volunteers must register in order to assist in the classroom, chaperone a field trip, or work with students.
  • Even if you do not anticipate volunteering until much later in the year, you must register at the beginning of the year.  
  • All new volunteers must register, and all previous volunteers must re-activate their status.  
  • Volunteers will need to use the school's designated computer to complete their registration. 
  • All volunteers will need to register and pass a criminal background check. (You will need to bring your drivers license with you).

To volunteer, you must come into the office and access the registration form on a school computer.

Previous volunteers need to re-activate their status but Oct. 31 (next wed) or they will be subjected to another background check (this means you CANNOT volunteer until the check is complete)

Please call the school office at 919-881-4910 if you have any questions.
