Volunteers make a significant impact on the excellent educational programs offered in Francis Howell School District. They provide enrichment opportunities that enhance the educational experience for students while supporting our teachers and staff. Volunteers also help us build a strong foundation for students as they select a career path or post-secondary education.

As volunteers enhance and support the academic programs, it is important to also help students have a positive attitude that will get them through challenging times as they grow and learn. By modeling for students the kinds of expectations they need to succeed, volunteers help them develop into productive citizens of the community. We urge you to become a strong advocate by sharing your positive experience with others and encouraging them to become involved in their child’s school.

Please review the 
Volunteer Handbook for an overview of the school volunteer program and the variety of opportunities that you may choose to pursue. In the handbook you will find information regarding how to sign up to be a volunteer, forms you will need to complete, applicable Board of Education policies and regulations, how to access eNEWS, and much more. Together we will make a difference. You are an important component in the success of our students. We are delighted that you have chosen to take an active role in the education of our students by volunteering and we look forward to seeing you at school!
