The District hosted campus volunteers for a luncheon as a token of gratitude for the many hours devoted to students, teachers and staff over the course of the school year.
The District has more than 16,000 active volunteers, giving thousands of hours of their time. This school year, community members have logged nearly 39,000 hours of their time to all campuses across the District. The District uses App-Garden Volunteer Tracker for background checks and volunteer hours tracking.
“We are thankful for our volunteers who allow our students to tap into their knowledge and skill set, which complements what is done in the classrooms each day,” Frisco ISD Superintendent Dr. Mike Waldrip said. “We could not do what we do without volunteers.”
Volunteers at the luncheon represented elementary, middle and high schools and highlighted the variety of volunteer opportunities throughout the District. Representatives from PTAs, IncubatorEDU, fine arts and numerous other individuals and groups were in attendance.
Maus Middle School Principal Chakosha Powell spoke to the volunteers expressing gratitude for the gift of time and presence on the campus.
“Volunteers are always behind the scenes and they mean so much to our campus,” Powell said. “What volunteers bring to our programming and support of our students is immeasurable.”
The luncheon was held at the Career and Technical Education Center, catered by the culinary arts students and decor was provided by the advanced floral design students.
