Volunteering is a work of heart

  • vol Volunteers are a vital resource for our schools and bring much needed assistance, experience and knowledge to our school communities. A volunteer for a single event that takes place for the duration of one day only does not need to submit an application but must check in through the front office with a school administrator and present a valid driver's license.

    Purpose of the School/Office Volunteer Program
    • Assist in classrooms, thereby allowing teachers to attend to students in need of extra help
    • Support school personnel in meeting the needs of students more effectively
    • Strengthen school/home/community relations by engaging parents and community as school volunteers
    • Provide adult role models for students through tutoring and mentoring opportunities that broaden their educational experience
    • Provide enriching intergenerational experiences for students and senior citizens that enriches students' lives.
