Volunteer training will be and the HIB training will be
Welcome to a very important part of this school district’s education team—VOLUNTEERS! It takes an exceptional person to give their time and energy to help make our schools stronger. Your caring enables us to work better and more productively, and your involvement brings to our students and teachers the extra time and personal contact that is vital to academic and personal success. You are giving students the powerful message that people care about them.
The opportunities for involvement are limitless. You can spend from one to six hours a day, one to five days a week, working in our schools. You may work with children of all ages and abilities and in a variety of areas including: working with students in the classroom, assisting with clerical tasks for staff, helping on the playground or take special projects home to work on them for individual staff members. Regardless of the area you choose to be involved, you will be enriching our children’s school experience and programs of Stanwood-Camano Schools.
Giving our children the best education possible is an investment in the strong future of our community and nation. Thank you for recognizing this need and reaching out to help. We would like to provide you with every tool necessary to make your volunteer experience a great one. This Volunteer Handbook is designed to answer many of the questions you may have as a volunteer. However, if you have other questions, or need further clarification, just ask!
As a member of our volunteer team, you will have the opportunity to build relationships with other volunteers and staff at your school. These relationships are invaluable as we work together. We’re so glad you’re here!
Looking forward to seeing you around the SHS Campus!
Christine Del Pozo, SHS Principal
