Calhoun County School District volunteers needed

CALHOUN COUNTY, Fla. (WJHG/WECP) - The days leading up to the first day of school are always busy for teachers.

"You see teachers up here all hours of the night, trying to get things ready for the school year and making sure the kids have everything they need ready for the first day of school," Altha Public School Fifth Grade Teacher Robyn Hill said.

The workload doesn't let up once the school year starts.

The Calhoun County School District is always looking for volunteers.

"We value the opportunity to engage parents, community members, business leaders because everyone working together... it takes a team to make this operate," Calhoun County Superintendent of Schools Ralph Yoder said.

If you're interested in volunteering, but not sure where you fit, ask the school's principal what the biggest needs are.

Teachers aren't the only ones volunteers can help.

"It's a great way to give back to the community and show kids the importance of serving the community through volunteering," Hill said.

More information about how to become a volunteer can be found on the Calhoun County School District website.

"We run all of our volunteers through a security background check just to make sure that those that are volunteering are allowed to be within our schools and around students," Yoder said.
