Now that we have school back in full swing, there are many opportunities to volunteer. We appreciate any amount of time you have to offer, once a week, once a month or once an event.  Every minute donated helps our school, students and builds our community.  We would love to have as many parents/community members volunteer in our school.

Become a Forest Greeter, Classroom help, Recess help, lunch room help, field trips, stuff bags for read around the forest, health screening, picture day, evening events for example, multicultural night and many other upcoming events.
