Getting Involved

Volunteering is a special way to get involved in your child's education. As an ADDitions School Volunteer, you can contribute by:

Additions School Volunteers

  • accompanying your child's class on field trips
  • helping as a classroom assistant
  • serving on the School Advisory Council (SAC).

Parent volunteers get a close-up view of their child's school. Seeing how your child is taught also can give you ideas on how to help your child at home. VOLUNTEER NOW!
