Be Involved! Renew Your Volunteer Registration with WSFC School System for 2018-2019
We love our volunteers at Brunson and hope to have you join us this year in support of our wonderful school! All volunteers must be registered with the WSFCS volunteer system and registration must be renewed each year. Follow this link to register for the first time or renew your registration from last year. Make sure that Brunson is listed as one of your schools so that you will show up on our list of cleared volunteers. All volunteers are encouraged to get cleared as a Level 2 volunteer so that you can interact with students at school, chaperone field trips, and assist in the classroom. Questions about volunteering at Brunson? Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can help you with the registration process and suggest opportunities to help out at school.
Please join us each Monday morning between drop-off (around 8:15) and 10:00 a.m. in the Brunson cafeteria. Brunson parents use this time to complete clerical tasks and special projects for teachers. Even if you have only 30 minutes to spare, you can make a difference. This great social time with other parents gives you a chance to learn more about Brunson and give back to our terrific teachers. This is an easy way to have a direct impact on the teachers and students at our school!
