VOLY PROGRAM FOR VOLUNTEER PARENTS

Dear Parents,

Without the involvement of our parents and volunteers, our students would not have the same enriching experience we strive to provide each and every day at SST. You are an invaluable addition to our team. In order to make it easier to find volunteer opportunities at your campus, as well as completing the required background check, we are using a new program called VOLY. We encourage you to follow the link below and register with your campus to get involved in the many opportunities we find to provide our students with the highest quality learning environment possible.

Register at: https://sstschools.voly.org/
Quick Start Guide: http://www.volnow.org/media/Voly/VOLY-Volunteer-Quick-Start-Guide.pdf

Thank you again for all your support.
Here's to the everyday heroes,
The volunteers who do what they can,
To ease the suffering of others,
And be of service to their fellow man.
May they know the true satisfaction
That comes from helping others
Less fortunate than themselves,
But no less their sisters and brothers.
May they feel gratitude in our hearts
For all of the good that they've done.
The appreciation that we all feel for them
Is truly second to none.


Thank you!
