George Shirakawa Sr. School's Volunteer Program
Helping in the classroom or around the school is a great way to stay involved and support our George Shirakawa Sr. School community. To volunteer in the classroom, please contact your student's teacher so a schedule can be arranged. The teacher will need to add your name in the volunteer log so your visit will be expected by the front office. To volunteer around the school, please contact the front office. Here are just a few ideas of the kind of roles we need on a regular basis:
  • Field Trip Chaperones
  • Event Planning
  • Classroom Assistant
