Volunteer Record Sheet

Calling all VOLUNTEERS!!!

Our parent volunteers are PRICELESS! You help us out in so many ways (i.e. distributing popcorn, being a homeroom parent, greeting students in the morning, cutting out things for the teacher, providing snacks for a class, etc.). Whether you volunteer at school or prepare things at home, please be sure to document the time you spend helping our school. We have a Volunteer Resource Book in the office for you to sign and fill out when you come to Westside to help. If you volunteer your time while at home, document the time you spend and give it to the office at the end of the year. We want to make sure we keep track of the many hours you have dedicated to our school, and we want to make sure you receive your proper thanks at the end of the year!

The counselor also has many resources available for check-out in her office as well. If you are interested in a particular topic, stop by the parent center and/or check with the counselor to see if we have any materials that might help to address your specific need.
