Volunteer at MWS
Your involvement is a very important part of your child’s education. Spending time with your child has a positive impact on a student’s self-concept and their ability to face new challenges. Parent volunteers play a valuable role at school.
Opportunities to volunteer on a scheduled, year-long basis (weekly or monthly) or one-time special event opportunities are available.
NOTE: See bottom of the page for the MWS Volunteer Handbook and Volunteer Sign Up Sheet.
