Posted on 04/20/2015

This week is National School Volunteer Week. Thank you, volunteers, for your service to our schools and our students!

McMinnville schools benefit from tremendous dedication and hours of service from hundreds of school volunteers. Volunteers work with students, chaperone field trips, organize school and class events, assist with supplemental fundraising activities, help prepare materials for classroom activities and serve in many other duties as needed.

The School Board has passed a proclamation recognizing the service of volunteers in McMinnville Schools for National School Volunteer Week. Read the School Board proclamation.

For information about volunteer opportunities, contact a neighborhood school office.

Pictured is Memorial PTA President Angela Bekofsky. In her two years as PTA President, Angela has coordinated the school science fair and provided leadership to the PTA. She spends two hours each day as a kindergarten aid. Memorial staff estimate that Bekofsky has logged more than 398 hours at the school so far this year.
