Many Hands Make Light Work

We are all volunteers on the FMPS School Council and we depend on other volunteers to help us make our programs a success. Volunteering is not only good for our school and community but we are each rewarded in our own special way, whether it’s knowing you’ve helped make a difference or even gained some practical experience to further your own goals.  Volunteers can participate in one event or many events!

If you're interested in finding out how you can get involved, please email us at [email protected]
