Looking to Get More Involved? VOLUNTEER!
Whether you have 30 minutes— or larger chunks of time— your willingness to volunteer makes a big difference in the life of our school! When adults volunteer, all students benefit! There are many opportunities for parents and community members to get involved, and your help is needed.
Plus, the best part is that you can help at the level that works for you. Most Reed MS volunteers work full or part time, which makes everyone's service extra important! We'd love to see some new faces! So take a look at some current needs we have, complete the Volunteer Interest form to let us know
