Superintendent Mike Cowan honors Joan Parish of Madison Elementary, the March 2013 MPS Volunteer of the Month.
April 22-26 is School Volunteer Week in Mesa Public Schools. Students, teachers, support staff and principals appreciate the many ways our volunteers enhance student achievement.
We welcome new volunteers
Parents, grandparents, residents, business people, retirees and winter visitors are a source of special skills and personal attention – as school volunteers.
Elementary, junior high and high schools need volunteers to help in many ways, working directly with students or behind the scenes — in areas such as classrooms, offices and libraries.
Become a volunteer in MPS
Potential parent volunteers may call their child's school for more information. Community volunteers who do not have children in Mesa Public Schools may apply at the school of their choice.
School administrators have the authority to determine the suitability of all prospective volunteers. For the safety of our students, community volunteers undergo an application process and background check through the Human Resources Department.
For more information, visit the Volunteer Services website, or call (480) 472-0433.
We honor our volunteers
The school board and superintendent honor Volunteers of the Month at school board meetings. They receive $50 gift cards and books titled "The Heart of a Volunteer" from the Mesa Foundation for Educational Excellence. They receive key chains, Volunteers are Priceless mugs and certificates of appreciation from the district.
April 22-26 is National Public School Volunteer Week. The school board and superintendent issue a proclamation each spring to express their gratitude for the countless contributions volunteers make to the quality of MPS and the success of its students.
