Thank you for volunteering your time and energy! We hope you find the experience rewarding and know that our children, teachers and families appreciate and benefit from what you do!
Please record your volunteer hours so the Volunteer Coordinator can submit your hours served to the MCPS Volunteer Data Center. Data reporting is mandatory for all schools and is used by MCPS to assist with resource allocation planning.
The easiest way to record your hours when you volunteer in school is to enter the date and hours in the volunteer binder at the front desk when you sign-in as a visitor and get a Visitor sticker. Alternatively, you may send your dates and hours to the Volunteer Coordinator by email.
Please submit hours by the 10th of the following month. Thank you!
