Volunteering has a great impact on our school! There are many ways you can enrich the education of Taylor students: Art Vistas, Room Parent, Crossing Guards, Mentoring, Fundraising events, Project Cornerstone and more! This is also a great opportunity to meet other parents. Find the best one that suits you.

Volunteer trainings are held on:

• Monday, November 2 at 1:00 p.m. (Portable 6)

We cover...

  • What to do in the event of an emergency
  • Our Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) program
  • How to use our copier and learn about how to get your Volunteer Badge (no more stickers for you!)
  • We'll answer any questions that you may have about volunteer programs and how to support students in the classroom
  • Find out the safety process for being on campus
