Suffolk Celebrates National Public School Volunteer Week – April 18-21
April 5, 2017
For nearly two decades, Project Appleseed has inspired millions of parents to volunteer in thousands of schools nationwide. National Public School Volunteer Week is one of the project’s family engagement events that produces hundreds of millions in volunteer time each year. Each year, parents and family members, state departments of education, nonprofits, businesses and thousands of school districts are involved.
When parents are involved in children’s learning, at school and at home, schools work better and students learn more. Project Appleseed is working with schools, families, employers and community organizations to develop local partnerships that support a safe school environment where students learn to challenging standards.
