Volunteer Registration Form
Elementary has earned the Five Star School Award for over a decade. This award
is given annually only to schools which have satisfied the multiple
requirements demonstrating total family and community involvement. This
portfolio is available for inspection.
Elementary has offered a well-rounded academic foundation for students for
almost half-a-century. Believing that every child can learn, we are always
looking for volunteers since some students need a little extra time and
attention to be successful. No special experience is required -- only patience,
flexibility, commitment, and a fondness for children. All volunteers will be
required to fill out a volunteer registration form available by clicking on the
above link. Simply complete the form and return it to our office along with a
copy of your driver's license for processing.
