Participation through volunteering allows you to be involved with your child's education. Research indicates that when families are involved, a child is more apt to get higher grades, be more likely to graduate, and go on to college. Our children love to see us around the school. You get to know your children's teachers and your children's friends and make a difference.
Let us know how you would like to help! Send in your name and how you would like to be a part of our team today!
