Reminder: Background Check Required for All Volunteers

Don’t forget that all school volunteers must have a background check at the start of every school year. Get it taken care of now so you are ready to volunteer!

·      If you had a background check last year, the process is easier because you are already in the FWISD system.

Cafeteria Volunteers Still Needed

We are in need of cafeteria volunteers. There are shifts available for the first month of school.

·      Lunch is from 10:15 a.m. to 12:50 p.m.

·      This is especially helpful for our younger grades to assist them with opening packages, navigating the cafeteria, etc.

·      The older grades need help with noise control.

·      If you can spare time during lunchtime, please go to this link to sign up. It is a great way to meet your children’s friends and teachers, and get a jump start on earning those volunteer hours.

·      To volunteer, you MUST have your FWISD background check approved beforehand.
