Volunteer

Parent Volunteering

Creative Montessori Academy believes strongly in parent participation, so they have parent volunteers in the school on a daily basis. A background check is performed on all volunteers. Volunteers are always welcome to come in and help in the classrooms.  Teachers do ask that 24 hours notice is given before doing so.

Student Volunteering

Upper elementary students at CMA have buddy classes, where they tutor or read with the younger students.  Our 4-6 year students volunteer their time with the 1-3 year students, and our 7-8 year students buddy with Kindergarten.

Along with the buddy classes, CMA's middle schoolers have been doing volunteer environmental projects in collaboration with Downriver Citizens for a Safe Environment and several other Downriver schools since 2004.  One such ongoing project is the bi-annual Benthic Testing done for the benefit of Wayne County’s Department of the Environment Watershed Management Division.  Students search through samples taken from our local watershed site, compiling a “bug census” which tells Wayne County’s scientists important information about the health of the watershed.  For more information and photos, please see the Downriver Citizens for a Safe Environment website.

Testimonials

CMA is so much more than just a school.  It's a place filled with caring, dedicated, teachers, hands-on administrative staff and children who care not only about each other, but also making our world a better place to live.  They excel at individualized instruction in a community setting.  My children have grown at this school in so many ways and I will be forever grateful for everyone here at CMA.
