Volunteering at Kenwood



One of our school’s greatest strengths is its committed volunteers.  If each one of us gives just a bit of our time and talents, it can make a huge difference in the lives of our students!  During the 2014-2015 school year, Kenwood again received the Golden School Award.  This award recognizes the commitment of our many dedicated volunteers!

For the safety of our students, a new Volunteer Affidavit must be completed each school year.  This form is required for all volunteering activities including chaperoning field trips, and must be submitted at least three days prior to the activity. Volunteer affidavits must also be notarized.  Notaries and forms are available in our school's front office.
