• Ridgecrest Elementary School's Family & Community Involvement Program reflects the school needs and strengths. Every day, exciting opportunities for our students take place because the members of the community care enough to get involved. School volunteers are people just like you -- community members, parents, grandparents, students, business people and seniors, who have discovered that spending time and sharing talents with students is an energizing and worthwhile experience.

    Being a school volunteer doesn't require any special skills- you simply need to be yourself. As you share your time and skills, students' lives can change. Seeing students reach their potential in the classroom and grow as individuals is a wonderful benefit of being a school volunteer. Knowing that you play a role in helping students achieve success is the satisfying part.

    All volunteers must register and be approved by PCS. To register as a volunteer, one must complete a volunteer registration form and provide a copy of their driver's license (legal ID) or reactivate their previous registration with the family and community relations representative. You select the day and the time of your volunteer activity. For more information on community involvement at Ridgecrest Elementary School please call our school at 588-3580.

    Volunteering as little as one hour of your time each week can make a difference.
