Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteering at Fairburn is critical to the success of our school, which is why Fairburn is asking each family to make a commitment to spend at least ten hours volunteering each school year. There are many ways to get involved, whether you want to help out in the classroom or at home at night; whether you’d like an ongoing role or would prefer to help with specific events during the year.  We need your special talents, skills and interests—parental involvement is what makes Fairburn an exceptional school.

Following is a list of various volunteer opportunities. We need each parent to volunteer at least ten hours of time to support these activities during the school year.

COMMITTEES

Volunteering at Fairburn is critical to the success of our school. It’s also a great way to get to know other Fairburn families, make life-long friends and contribute to your child’s education. We understand that everyone is busy with jobs, families and other important commitments, but we rely on you to support the programs and events that make Fairburn so special.

 

There are so many ways to contribute and we have positions for all levels of skill and time commitments. Help in the classroom, or on your computer. Bring your special talents to our community—or learn something new. We can’t wait to work together with you this year to keep Fairburn great!
