Volunteers Are Important

Volunteers play an important and valuable role in education.  We know that few schools can exist without their contributions, which represent generosity and, at times, sacrafice.  Students, teachers, administrators, parents and the community benefit from the work of people like you who freely share their talents and resources.  We also know that as a volunteer you too will be rewarded.

Successful school volunteers make firm and reliable commitments and follow through with their services.  School volunteer work-however insignificant it may seem to an outsider-will not be viewed as unimportant by the school staff.  Your assistance will be highly valued by those you help.
