Do you have 30 minutes a week to make a difference in YOUR child's education?

There are many opportunities at San Juan School for parents/guardians to get involved.

By volunteering, you not only help your own child to succeed, but you help other children as well. Volunteering helps your child see that you value their efforts at school, respect the teachers and staff’s time and are committed to their education. Please stop by the office to sign the volunteer sheets each time you visit our school.

Language is not a barrier to volunteering, it is an asset. Any time that you are able to dedicate to our school is greatly appreciated! Bring a friend!
