Parent Volunteers/Field Trip Chaperones

If you would like to chaperone a field trip or volunteer in the classroom, you must have a volunteer application on file.  You can obtain the required forms at the front office.  They do take time to process, once turned in, so please turn them in early.  Once your volunteer application is approved, it stays active the whole time you are here at Yokota AB, you should not need to re-do the application while you remain stationed here.

Parent Feedback:
You have the opportunity to let us know how we are doing.  For each visit to our school please provide us with valuable feedback by completing the following form (paper copies are available at the front office, and the digital and paper copies are anonymous).
