Parent Engagement & Volunteer OpportunitiesParent involvement is an important and beneficial part of School life. The following organizations offer a vast array of volunteer positions that provide opportunities to pursue interests and share expertise with the Latin community.
This club supports the activities of the School’s athletics program. Among the activities sponsored by the Booster Club is the Annual Hawkspy Awards Banquet. Booster Club volunteers also operate the concession stand during athletic events. Booster Club memberships are sold each year.
Latin Arts Association
This umbrella organization provides support for the School’s arts programs. The organization is composed of guilds that focus on specific areas of the arts program: Friends of Music, Friends of Theater, Friends of Creative Writing and Friends of Visual Arts. An LAA membership drive occurs annually.
All Charlotte Latin parents are automatically members of the CLS Parents’ Council. Its activities embrace many areas of school life, such as sponsoring the Touchdown Tailgate each fall and May Day Play Day, the school’s family-favorite spring festival. Parents are invited to attend the Parents’ Council’s monthly board meetings.
Family Technology Task Force
We know that our families are concerned about “screen time,” particularly when technology takes away from family time at home. To that end, the Charlotte Latin School Family Technology Task Force was established in 2016-17 to explore best practices in personal technology use. The group's mission is to strengthen the parent-school partnership by providing resources to help guide technology use at home. The Task Force will work with School administrators and volunteers throughout each school year to fulfill its mission in a variety of ways such as parent education opportunities, speakers, promoting screen free week, etc.
Diversity and Inclusion Program
The Director of Diversity and Multicultural Affairs coordinates opportunities to identify and implement strategies to create awareness about diversity issues, as well as to attract students and families of diverse backgrounds to Charlotte Latin. Please contact the Director of Diversity and Multicultural Affairs if you would like to participate in these activities.
Other Volunteer Opportunities
Parents also may volunteer to serve as Homeroom Parents, Library Assistants and Division Office Assistants. Please contact the appropriate administrator to inquire about these opportunities.
