Volunteers

Community involvement is playing an increasingly important role in our schools as we face mounting educational, social and financial challenges.  Port Angeles schools welcome parents, grandparents, service clubs, businesses and others interested in the well-being of our children to contribute their time, experience and expertise to our students. Many community members already volunteer in school enrichment projects, reading and tutoring, community services programs, vocational programs, and arts and crafts instruction. 

If you would like to volunteer in our Port Angeles schools, please call the Central Services Building at (360) 457-8575, or call your neighborhood school to find out how you may get involved:
