The Shorewood School District relies heavily on a strong group of parent and community volunteers to provide support in a number of areas. Volunteer duties may involve service in libraries or classrooms, at athletic events or performing art programs. Volunteers chaperon, tutor, mentor and coach youth sport teams. Volunteers are members of advisory committees and booster clubs. Volunteers who work through our four parent organizations are involved in community building, communications, and fund raising for special projects.
