Jackson R-2 School Volunteers

Volunteers are an essential part of the Jackson R-2 School District. Volunteers enhance the efforts of staff members by working with students, helping with school activities and assisting with clerical duties. Jackson R-2 volunteers are part of the school team and enrich district activities by increasing productivity and effectiveness.

Volunteer activities include direct interaction in the classroom, including listening to students read, providing individual assistance to students, and assisting with class activities. Volunteers are also needed for indirect interaction such as copying materials, assisting with classroom or school decorating, and helping prepare activities for students. Volunteers may also assist by working on projects at home. Examples include, cutting bulletin board materials, preparing materials for a class activity and tabulating book orders.

The Jackson R-2 School District Volunteer program is a “school-based” program. Each school in the district determines its unique needs and the kinds of services to be provided to meet those needs. For more information contact the building principal or the superintendent’s office, 243-9501.

Imagination is the only limit to a volunteer’s involvement. By sharing ideas, talents, and skills, volunteers make a difference in the lives of students in Jackson R-2 Schools.
