Classroom Volunteers

        There will be many opportunities for parents and others to volunteer in the classrooms at our school. We welcome parents and hope they can volunteer on a regular basis. 

        Those with knowledge and skills related to topics we are covering are invited to come in and share that knowledge. We will schedule guest speakers as it fits in with our curriculum.

        Please note that all volunteers who will be working with students on a regular basis, during the school year, will need to be fingerprinted prior to volunteering at the school. Occasional guest speakers will not need to be fingerprinted, but must be accompanied by staff, at all times, while on the premises.
