You are here

Community and parent volunteers are welcomed in our schools. You do not need to have prior experience or any formal training; we will provide you with the resources and support you need to have a successful experience. There are many ways to get involved at Whitehorse Middle School.

When you become a volunteer, your work takes on special significance -- though you are not part of the staff, you do share the same responsibilities of keeping students safe. All on-going volunteers are required to complete the volunteer application. If the volunteer position will have you working 1:1 with students without immediate MMSD staff supervision, you must also complete and return the disclosure/background check.
