Volunteer with Frankford Helping Hands!
We would like to introduce a new program, Frankford Helping Hands, which will give you the opportunity to help around the school on a weekly basis in areas we've found could use some assistance while providing positive connections with the students. A simple smile and a "Good Morning" can go a long way!
Our teachers and staff would love a friendly smile and a helping hand to make certain times of the day run more smoothly and ultimately make a positive impact. Our first opportunity is with Morning Greeters on Tuesday and Thursday mornings during student arrival.
Click here to pick a date that works for you.
Your time, whether you can help out once or several mornings, is always appreciated!
As a reminder, all PISD volunteers must complete their annual volunteer registration and background check through https://plano.voly.org/.
Questions? Please contact Rosie Rodriguez, VP Volunteers, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for giving some of your time to help us soar together as a community!
