WIS Volunteers

Dear WIS Parents,

Washington International School is more than just a place where your children go to school.  It is a community. Help us create an exceptional educational experience by sharing your collective wisdom and collaborating with our extended community.

We strongly encourage every parent to find an activity or two to volunteer with (more if you wish!). All parents are members of the Washington International School Parents Association, which oversees the majority of our volunteer activities. There are various opportunities for you to share your many talents.  We welcome you to be part of our unique Washington International School experience. Once you have signed up, a member of the volunteer leadership team will contact you soon.

Thank you in advance for your involvement.
