East Mountain High School believes that students are successful when parents and the community are involved in the life of the school. For this reason, parents are asked to volunteer thirty (60) hours per year, to benefit EMHS. This requirement is per family, not per child, and hours can be carried over from year to year.

Some parents choose to meet the volunteer requirement by donating money or supplies to EMHS. Donations of money or supplies can be converted to hours at the rate of $10 per hour. By giving of their time, talents or treasure, parents are helping EMHS be the school their children need to succeed.

Almost anything can count as parent volunteer hours, including attending school events, attending athletic games, chaperoning field trips, carpooling, helping the EMHS Foundation, attending SPSO meetings and volunteering at Isotopes games for the Booster Club. The only things that don’t count are driving your own child to school and helping other community organizations instead of EMHS.
