Volunteering @ NWSA


We are very fortunate to have great volunteers to help make Northwest the BEST!  We hope you can contribute your time and efforts.  We have many, many opportunities for which to volunteer or contribute.  For example, tutoring, proctoring, classroom helper, chaperone, costume creation, stage set up, visual arts displays, performances, school leadership committee, PTSO, teacher support, fund raising, etc.  You may also join your student's Arts Booster Club!  (See link "School Boosters and Clubs" on left.)  ALL VOLUNTEERS must be registered and approved on the CMS Volunteer Management System, found at (opens in a new window).  Volunteers must list NWSA at which to volunteer when registering.  Volunteers must also "RE-ACTIVATE" their status each year by logging in, reviewing their profile data, THEN clicking "submit." Please know that paid CMS staff from other CMS schools and visiting instructors must also be registered and approved with NWSA to be on our campus with our students.


Welcome to NWSA! We certainly appreciate your offer to be a volunteer at our school. After discussing your potential volunteer position and requirements with a staff member, please follow the next few guidelines. We know that you will get the “bug” and visit often! 

  1. All volunteers must be registered on the online CMS Volunteer Management System (VMS) as linked on the (opens in a new window) webpage.
  2. It is a CMS requirement that all visitors and volunteers sign in and sign out at the front office for each visit using our Lobby Guard system.
  3. All visitors and volunteers must wear appropriate name tag while on campus.
  4. Remember that students come from diverse backgrounds. Treat them with respect at all times. Should a problem arise, defer to the responsible staff member. 
  5. Become familiar with the safety procedures for this campus should an emergency occur. 
  6. Please remember to log out in the front office. In addition, when volunteering for night events, please make sure the Booster Club logs your hours. This data helps us in securing grants. 
  7. Have fun!​
