Volunteer Opportunities

We value your partnership and hope that you will consider playing an active role in your child’s education. There are a variety of ways to participate and several are listed on the MSAD #51 Volunteer Application. Each MSAD #51 volunteer is required to complete a Volunteer Application for approval prior to beginning volunteer duties. An approval involves a background check and applicants will be contacted in the event that there are questions or their application has been rejected. Volunteer approvals are valid for five years; it is not necessary to complete a new form each year. We look forward to working closely with you over the next several years. Wonderful students, teachers, community members and parents make our schools a special place to learn and grow.

There are so many ways to support education in Cumberland and North Yarmouth. Please consider volunteering or joining one of the organizations listed below.

The MSAD 51 PTO develops, maintains and finances programs, functions, and projects that provide enrichment opportunities for the students, parents and teachers in MSAD 51. Our grade level and school wide programming build upon classroom themes and building goals. We promote positive school and community relations by fostering communication among school administrators, teachers, parents and the community. As a tax-exempt 501 (c) (3) non-profit, we readily accept donations for use towards these efforts.

Foundation 51
Foundation 51 is an all-volunteer, non-profit organization, which was established in 1998 to promote educational excellence in MSAD 51 by funding grants that improve teaching and learning for all students, grades K-12. All of our schools receive grants, supporting many disciplines, from the arts to the sciences, and literacy to technology. The support from our community enables us to enrich the learning of our students and make their education more meaningful.
