Start the Year off with Volunteering!
The Camdenton School District’s Volunteers in Public Schools Program (VIPS) is looking for volunteers to provide an extra helping hand this school year. The VIPS program is comprised of over 250 volunteers and the need continues to grow. Anyone interested in listening to students read, helping teachers with classroom projects, giving clerical assistance, or supporting our staff in the many ways available to volunteers, please call the Camdenton School District Office of Volunteer Services at 573-346-9243. When you are a VIPS volunteer, you can help the teacher provide additional individualized attention to students, stimulate interest and motivation, and help reinforce skills. You can also supplement and enrich the educational program by bringing to school a special talent or skill, help with classroom preparation, or give clerical assistance that teachers may need. The VIPS program reaches all the Camdenton District Schools. Keep in mind, wherever you live, there is an opportunity available to volunteer. What a way to spend a day, smiles are had by all! Feel free to visit us on the web at camdentonschools.org. Look under Programs/Services and click on Camdenton Volunteers.
