Volunteer Opportunities

Which talents or services can you offer to support the educational well-being of students at Oak Arbor School? We welcome volunteer help from parents, grandparents, alumni, community members and other supporters of our school's purpose, values and vision.

When you volunteer, you send a message to our students that you care about them and support their success in school. In a given school year many volunteers contribute to the quality of our program and the overall development of our school.
