Volunteer

Volunteering your time and talents is a much-appreciated way to support the efforts of Midtown Public Charter School. Please see below for a list of available projects. Thank you for your support!

Manual labor

Carpet installation
Project:
 Four of our module classroom spaces have rolling desks that slide easily and create a very loud noise. Installing carpet in these modules will help keep desks in place and reduce the overall noise levels.
Time: Each of the four module classrooms spaces requires approximately twelve hours of work to install carpets (for instance, a team of four people each working three hours could complete one of the four classroom spaces). Work must be completed when school is not in session (weekend or evenings).
To volunteer: Contact Principal Kevin Parkinson, (601) 354-7770 or email kevinparkinson@midtownpublic.org

Receptionist desk painting
Project:
 Our large receptionist desk is in disrepair and need of a fresh coat of paint. This will provide a more inviting welcome for guardians and a cleaner work station for the receptionist.
Time: The large desk can likely be painted by one or two people in no more than two hours. Work must be completed when school is not in session and when there will be enough time for the paint to dry, such as on a Friday evening, during spring break, etc.
