Parent Involvement and Opportunities
Denkmann offers a compact for volunteer hours from parents at the school. The most common ways for parents to interact with the school is through the PTA, room volunteers, the School Leadership Team, Special Events, and the School Survey.
Safety, Parking, Crossing Guards
For safety, there is a designated pick up and drop off area at the school. Students may come onto school grounds at 8:10 a.m. (unless they are eating breakfast). At 8:20 a.m., students line up to come into the building and school starts at 8:30 a.m. Denkmann also has both child and adult crossing guards.
Playground Time & Supervision
School-wide recess is only scheduled during the students’ lunchtime. Our primary class usually takes an added recess in the afternoon. The additional recess times vary from class to class. During these times volunteers, aides, teachers, and the principal supervise the children in their play.
