Your valuable time is needed!


Listen and/or read to a child at Wilson


Volunteer to come in and listen to an Early Childhood or Lower Elementary student read, or read to a student yourself! All volunteers must be VIPS approved, for more information on what VIPS is and to register, click here.


By the way, if you would like to participate with your child at a school field trip, or just help in the classroom - you must be approved by VIPS. It takes about two weeks to get approved, so don't wait too long!
