Retirees . . . Housewives and house husbands . . . Working people with occasional school days off or extra time on weekends . . . Have we got a deal for you!
If you’re willing to use a little of your spare time to give back to your community, Battle Ground Public Schools can use you as a volunteer.
Scores of men and women across this sprawling school district devote as little as an hour or two a month to as much as several hours a week working directly with eager-to-learn students in the classroom, but in many other ways, too. For example:
- With band, drama, drill teams, Science Olympiad squads, in the office, etc.
- At events such as book fairs, school carnivals, open houses, and spaghetti feeds.
- In the classroom and elsewhere in the school buildings.
The pay is zero, but the reward for helping students is . . . priceless.
Check with the principal or an assistant principal at the school of your choice. For general questions about volunteering or clearance and background checks, contact Trudy Storey at (360) 885-5306, firstname.lastname@example.org in the school district’s Human Resources office.
