VOLUNTEERING AT WESTERN CHRISTIAN SCHOOLS

When you choose a school for your child, you choose a community for your family.  Volunteering promotes a sense of belonging and provides opportunities to build meaningful and longstanding friendships with other families. Volunteers are an invaluable part of Western Christian Schools.  Leadership and support from our parents make it possible for students and families to experience the full joy and value of Christian Education.  We encourage every parent to get involved and share their gifts with the school community. Jesus is glorified though your service to His ministry. THANK YOU!

Throughout the school year parents can expect to receive emails detailing various ways to get involved with upcoming events or activities as well as leadership opportunities and meeting dates will be announced for event and activity planning.  All volunteers must be fingerprinted (one time only) and on file with the school.  Each volunteer will have a badge available in the school office which must be worn while on school grounds.
