We would like to increase our volunteers in our school; therefore, we are instituting our Volunteers in Public Schools Program (VIPS). There are many wonderful opportunities for people in our community to share their expertise and guidance with our students, so we hope you decide to participate in VIPS. Parents interested in volunteering must complete the packet as well.

Texas law and school district policy require all volunteers to complete and pass a background check. Furthermore, all volunteers must sign a confidentiality agreement and abide by the VIPS guidelines. All forms should be turned in to Trista Wood at the Administration Office.
