Wentzville School District

The 's Volunteer Handbook states that "the use of volunteers within the school program, whether during or after regular school hours, enhances the educational process not only for students, but also for the total community." The district utilizes volunteers as support in the classroom, as resource persons and on advisory committees. Interested persons should contact the principal of the building where they are interested in serving.

I was a member of the first " oasis " team to be used in the Fort Zumwalt School District. Please give your consideration to signing up. You will not believe the help that you can give to a child who has yet gotten up to speed in his/her school work. Reading is essential and you can help. Please Sigh Up.
