Why Get Involved?
This school runs on volunteers!
Younger classes need lots of parent volunteers
Everyone can find something, it doesn’t have to be in the classroom.
We need every adult to participate in some way in the big 4 events for them to work.
Need new google group volunteer!
For major roles, we ask that you do it 2 years. 1 year to learn, 1 year to teach.
VOLUNTEER FAIR…the Big 4 and More!
