Ambassador Program Contract

Below is a contract for Fairview Ambassadors and their parents to review, sign, and follow. These provisions are designed to ensure that the Fairview Ambassadors fulfill their obligations and represent Fairview Elementary in a way in which we can all be proud. Any violations of these provisions could lead to dismissal from the program. Ambassadors are expected to be role models of the RISE expectations.

1. Ambassadors will arrive to their duties with smiles on their faces, kindness in their hearts, and an eagerness to assist those around them in any way that presents itself. Every Ambassador will strive to be the best individual that he or she can be and will take responsibility for his or her own actions without blaming others for problems that may arise.

2. Ambassadors may be faced with challenging situations when carrying out their duties. You are expected to use your best judgment in the moment and then to keep the Ms. Katie aware of any major difficulties.

3. It is a privilege to be a Fairview Ambassador. Ambassadors’ behavior will be exemplary. Any Ambassador who receives a major discipline referral to the office will be removed from Ambassadors. Additionally, if an Ambassador receives multiple minor referrals or misses a Soar party due to having too many warnings, they will be removed from the Ambassador program.  

4. Parents are asked to encourage their Ambassadors to behave responsibly. This may involve dropping off and picking up their children at various times, coaching them on how to behave in certain situations, and encouraging their Ambassadors to seek counsel from Ms. Katie if a difficult situation arises. 

5. Every Ambassador will do his or her best in each subject area. If teachers report a lack of effort on the Ambassadors part to complete school work to the best of their ability can result in termination of Ambassador status. This is not intended as a punishment – we simply don’t want to distract any child from his/her educational goals. 

6. Ambassadors will arrive to all of their assigned duties on time. If you are sick or have an appointment that cannot be scheduled at another time, then you will be excused. Please let the scheduler know ahead-of-time if you will be out for an extended time period for scheduling purposes.

7. Ambassadors will have simple uniforms (vests). These uniforms are to be treated well. If an Ambassador loses or doesn’t take good care of the uniform, that ambassador will be asked to be responsible for replacing the item.

This is an exciting program – our Ambassadors can improve our school environment; reach out to assist individual students, staff, and visitors in a myriad of ways; and strengthen their own character each day! It is a privilege to be a Fairview Ambassador, and there are consequences to an Ambassador’s actions. We are excited that you want to join the Fairview Ambassadors!

Note to parents of potential Fairview Ambassadors:

The Ambassador program is a wonderful opportunity for your child to exercise independence and demonstrate responsibility. This is not the proper venue for your child to learn how to be responsible. You know your child better than any of us here at school. Please only encourage your child to apply to be an ambassador if you believe that he or she is prepared to undertake this responsibility.

An ambassador is required to arrive for his or her duty promptly at 7:30 a.m. We ask that you, as a parent, commit to getting him or her to school on time to start duties when school begins. If you can’t commit to getting your child here in mornings, we can possibly use them during after-school duties. Please consider this carefully before filling out the schedule portion of the application.
