Role
within
the School &
Purpose.

Our FCO provides necessary leadership to organize parent volunteers in coordination with school needs. Through this organization, parents can find a variety of ways to contribute their talents to the school. Families are surveyed during registration to help us understand their interests and opportunities for volunteering and/or acting as community experts. Families are asked to stay current with Family Crew opportunities to grow GreenWood via our FaceBook page, Friday newsletters, and teacher newsletters/emails.  Please email fco@greenwoodcharter.org if you have an area of expertise or a hobby that you would like to share with GreenWood to contribute your volunteer hours. Get involved to GROW GREENWOOD!
