That's great news! There's a lot of evidence that links student success to his/her parents' involvement and engagement in the school community.
You can find our current volunteer needs (links to SignUp Genius) in the Upcoming Events to your right. Throughout the year, we will be adding others, but if you see an unfilled need on campus, please let us know!
We also have committee openings that could be a perfect match for your skills and available time. Technical help with social media and the internet, and arranging fundraising spirit nights are both examples of super important roles that don't even require you to leave your home.
