Ways To Get Involved With the Cluster
Looking for ways to meet your family’s goal to volunteer 20 hours of service this year? The new CHCS Volunteer Corner has lots of ideas on where to start. Whether you’d rather run laps at Watkins’ recess, dish up salads at Peabody, help with modernization planning at Stuart-Hobson, shelve library books, chaperone field trips, write grants, be a Math Buddy, lend at hand at the Spring Fling, lace up your sneakers for the Classic, or plant flowers in the gardens, the Cluster has volunteer opportunities for every interest and every schedule.
