Thank you your for visiting the "Volunteers" tab! The volunteer opportunities will continue to be added to this tab as they become available so please continue to check back for ones that may fit into your schedule.
Why Volunteer?: The number one reason people don't volunteer is because no one asked them. Well, we are asking for you to please be involved! Your time and knowledge is needed and wanted by our staff and students. The diversity of our community and the experiences that can be shared with our students is valuable. Whether it's a little time or a lot of time on campus or at home, WE NEED YOU! We could not do it without you!
2 Hour Pledge: Please consider giving Way just two hours of your time. If each parent, grandparent, uncle, aunt or loved one volunteers just two hours of time, each of our programs will run beautifully.
Find a niche that you love and be a part of the workings of Barnesville Elementary. Your help is important and appreciated.
