Volunteering at Maplewood

Why get involved?

Volunteers are the heart and soul of our School and are an integral part to the success of our School and students.  Just a few of the rewards from volunteering are: your time saves our school resources; your commitment brings people in the school community together; your presence on campus and during activities makes your children proud to see you being involved and helping out (not to mention setting a great example for them); and most importantly, you are making a difference!

There are many ways to get involved in the Maplewood community from mentoring and tutoring students, helping with events, taking on leadership roles, beautifying campus grounds, fundraising, advocacy, communications, health and fitness, food pantry, office help and much more!

Any gift of time, small or big will help out tremendously. Our School could not do it all without the help of our volunteers. We look forward to meeting you.
