We are here to enrich your student’s education. We can’t do this alone. We need the help of our wonderful parents at Serene Hills to donate their time to volunteer. There are many, many ways to get involved at SHE and enhance each child’s experience at the school.
Please take a few minutes of your time to fill out the volunteer survey with your contact info and select the ways you might be interested in volunteering your time. PTO will contact you directly as these volunteer opportunities arise.
