conducts background checks on all school volunteers and workplace mentors

Here are some volunteer opportunities that are available:
Experienced readers are working 1-on-1 with a younger reader.
If you love to read and want to help a younger reader on his/her journey,
this could be a rewarding experience for you and your 1-on-1 reader.
Before and After School Activities
We have a large variety of Before and After School Activities
at WVMS. Some of the activities are run by volunteers, some by WVMS
Staff, and some by our Artists-in-Residence. Regardless of who runs
them, we could always use some extra help.
Get into the thick of it - come help out in the classrooms,
or be a classroom supply manager.
Extended Learning Opportunities. If you have a special talent
or interest that you would like to share with students, this opportunity
could be for you.
We always welcome and enjoy chaperones on field trips. The kids
love it too!
Want to be involved in the fundraising that we do at WVMS? Join
the Fundraising Committee. There are fundraising meetings scheduled
a few times a year, especially when we we are planning events. Have
a fundraising idea? Bring it to the Parent Community Meeting or email

We need help reshelving books, and keeping our beautiful new
library looking beautiful.
We always need extra help!
Please volunteer if you are able to.
No amount of time is too small. If you have the time ... we have a job
Rapid Reading Buddies
Reading Buddies Rock! At least that is what I hear from the
younger half of the Reading Buddy Team. Being a Reading Buddy is a very
meaningful and rewarding commitment that you make to a young reader
at WVMS. You will meet with your Buddy 2 days a week for about 30 -
40 minutes each time. We like Reading Buddies who can commit that time
for the school year. This way you can build a special relationship with
your Reading Buddy while helping him/her on their way to a lifetime
of reading. The days and times are Tuesday and Thursday from 9:00 -
9:30. There will be a brief training session to help Reading Buddies
understand the process of Rapid Reading, and to ask any questions that
you may have.
We are always in need of Community Snack for our daily school
wide "Snack Time" and for our After School Activities. If
you are unable to donate time, please consider donating healthy snacks.
