Forest Hills School District volunteers provide meaningful support that helps make an array of learning opportunities available to students. Parents, community members, alumni and others are able to engage and empower students directly through their talents, time and abilities.
Schools regularly accept volunteer assistance for student and school programs and events such as carnivals, reading buddies, staff appreciation days, theater and band performances, 5K runs, After-Prom and homecoming. Individuals who are interested in volunteering should contact the main office or the PTA/PTO of the school where they wish to volunteer.
The procedures and guidelines for visitors and volunteers at Forest Hills School District can be found below.
