River Woods Home and School

Volunteer Interest: 2022-2023

River Woods Home & School's mission is to work in cooperation with administrators and teachers to support and enhance the school experience of each student. We would love to hear from you, as parents and guardians, for ideas you have to help bring our community together. Please email ideas to [email protected] at any time during the year.

The information below describes Home & School’s activities in a typical yearVolunteering at River Woods is a terrific way to learn about your child's school. Your time and talent, at school or at home, helps to provide programs that benefit all of our kids. We appreciate the time you can offer to make our events and school year a success!

The following committees and activities need volunteers to make them a success. Please review the available opportunities for volunteering and select any of interest to you, or you can sign up to be a general volunteer and we'll contact you as help is needed. For all opportunities, a committee chair or co-chair will contact you with opportunties to help. Many opportunities will have a separate sign up closer to the event with specific roles and details.

Thank you for supporting the River Woods community!
