Volunteers Needed in the BHS Library!

Parent volunteers are needed to help in the Ballard Library by signing up for regular weekly shifts during the school day. This is a great opportunity for parents who are able and interested to come 2 hours a week at the same time each week. Help our fantastic librarian Ms. Chambers with checking in books, book displays, re-shelving and other special projects!

Please note that SPS requires all volunteers to complete their volunteer approval process before you can volunteer.  Complete the forms needed on our Volunteer Paperwork page and email us if you have any questions at all at to Jen Wenrick and Joy Das Gupta volunteer.ballardhs@gmail.com Thank you!
