It’s no secret that parent involvement is a huge indicator of student success. Grand Rapids Public Schools is a district that loves to have parents helping out within our schools! Without volunteers our school communities would not be as rich and rewarding as they are today. Helping out at your child’s school can help them immensely in more ways than one. Students that have involved parents are more likely to earn better grades, have better attendance and behavior, have a positive attitude about school. and pass their classes.
Yet another good reason to apply to become a volunteer today is: volunteer status at GRPS is good for TWO years! This will come in handy when you decide last minute you want to attend a school function such as a field trip, popcorn day, book fair, or any other school event you can think of that you’d like to assist with! By having completed your application you will have the luxury of being able to fit in last minute opportunities such as those mentioned.
We are always accepting volunteer applications and have an infinite number of positions available!
