Volunteer

Volunteering is a great way to meet other Fairlands parents, get involved at school, and bring positive change to your child's community. You can volunteer where and when your time permits. Without your help, many educational and fun events would not be possible.

In order to volunteer on campus, in classrooms, or attend field trips during school hours, you must bring your driver's license or a government-issued photo ID.
