Attention Parent Volunteers Attention Parent Volunteers!
The District strongly supports the involvement of parents in our schools. State law requires volunteers to have the necessary legal clearances on file with the District. To make this process easier for our parents, we have created a Volunteer Page for the District website that will walk parents through this process. Also provided is a list of current approved volunteers along with the date their clearances expire.  

Woman reading a book outside in the summer Summer Reading Ideas
District librarians are frequently asked for suggestions or advice to help direct young readers to books they may enjoy. For the summer, each building has created a list for parents and students looking for ideas. Please note that these are not books required in the curriculum, but simply suggestions to encourage our students to keep reading over the summer months. Take a look!
