Volunteers are Welcome!
We love our volunteers! From giving their time in the classroom to planning and coordinating special events to everything in between, our volunteers help make our schools a richer, stronger learning environment. Interested in learning more about how you can make a measurable difference in the lives of our students? Contact the school.
"Volunteers do not necessarily have the time; they just have the heart."
— Elizabeth Andrew
Under the leadership of our new principal, Mr. Voll, nearly the entire school staff (including Mr. Voll) have been volunteering to tutor students in grades 3-8 in reading and math. We are committed to providing our students with extra help that they may need or would to have. We are always seeking volunteers who would like to participate in a capacity that suits his/her interest and schedule.

Truly effective schools have parents/guardians as partners in all aspects of the educational organization. Parents/Guardians are welcome members of the Roselawn Condon team.
Parents/guardians can be involved at school in the following ways.
New Prospect and Roselawn Condon School Tutorial Program
We are pleased to that the New Prospect Baptist Church has created a tutorial program especially for our students at Roselawn Condon. Tutors work one-on-one with a student who needs help with reading and/or math. The students are tutored after school or on Saturdays at Roselawn Condon School.

Volunteer to Help in Your Child(ren)'s Classroom
The most effective volunteers are those who set aside a specific time every week to assist in the classroom. Schedule this time with your child's teacher.
If you cannot come into school, ask your child's teacher if there is anything that you can do to help with classroom activities or celebrations. We understand that not every parent/guardian is available during the school day.
Our goal is to help every parent be as involved as his/her schedule permits. We need your help in many ways, not just as volunteers in classrooms.
Interact with Your Child About School on a Daily Basis
All Roselawn Condon students should read every school night. Reading with a parent/guardian is a major part of learning how to read for grade K-3 students. Grade 4-8 students, even though they can read more independently, they still need parental support and encouragement to read regularly.
Parents/Guardians should ask to see your child's Wednesday Night Folders, homework folders, and go over homework assignments with their child(ren) each evening. Many times teachers will write notes in the Wednesday folders and/or homework folders for parent/guardians. Please respond to these notes by writing in the Wednesday Night Folders and homework folder in the space provided for your response.
You will receive update letters and/or newsletters from your child's teacher. This update will keep you informed about what your child is learning in school and give suggestions about ways that you can help your child iwth school topics at home.
Communicate with School
Roselawn Condon is your school, too. Please let us know what is and/or not working for your child and your family. All communication for parents/guardians comes home weekly in our Wednesday Night Folders. Check your child's folder every Wednesday night for important school information. Sign and return all requested material in a timely manner.
Teacher conferences are held on a quarterly basis, but parents/guardians can contact teachers at any time by leaving a message on the teacher's voice mail. Classroom visitations can be scheduled with your child's teacher. Whenever you can, attend school activities such as evening programs where students perform or at topic of interest to parents/guardians is discussed.
Mid-term/Quarterly conferences will be held after school hours so that we can accommodate parent work schedules. Parent conference dates and times will be published at the beginning of the school year. Teachers will contact parents to schedule conferences throughout the year. Parents/Guardians may schedule a conference with a teacher at any time during the school year.
Parent Teacher Group
The general goal of our Parent Teacher Group (PTG) is to have parents/guardians team up with teachers and staff to assist in successfully educating our students. In addition, the PTG runs fundraising activities and school-wide events to joy for all of students and parents/guardians. By being involved, our students could only gain from your wealth of experience and presence. If you wish to join our group, please contact the office — we would love to hear from you.

Parent Involvement Committee
The Parent Involvement Committee consists of teachers who organize and meet throughout the academic school year with hopes of encouraging parents to become more involved in student life at school. The Parent Involvement Committee strives to work with our Parent Teacher Group (PTG), in order to facilitate a clear line of communication between educators and parents. Ideally, the group would meet once a month to converse about current and future events at Roselawn Condon. The committee creates and hosts fundraisers to finance activities at the school for students, such as bake sales and holiday treat sales. Academic events and special performances are organized by the committee to showcase students' work and stimulate conversation between parents and their children.
The Parent Involvement Committee is always looking for interested parents and community members who can join and strengthen the connection between Roselawn Condon and students' homes. Prospective members are encouraged to contact the office for more information.
The Parent Center is a specifically designated room for parents and guardians of Roselawn Condon students. There are computers, reading materials, a coffee pot, microwave oven, and ample space for parents and guardians to utilize. In addition, there are books and hands-on educational activities for young children to use. The Parent Center is open during school hours when school is in session.
Location: Room 1403 (next door to the main office)
