BHS "Forthcoming Parade" 9/25/19

Our Explorers got to see all the "big kids" from BHS during their parade last Wednesday. It was a great chance for them to see all the different activities and clubs they can be in when they are next door. We loved showing our BHS Bears spirit and you can see how much the high school kids enjoyed having such a big fan club cheering them on!

Volunteer in Public Schools (VIPS) Registration Information

Volunteers,

Volunteers in Public Schools (VIPS) participating in Cypress-Fairbanks ISD schools make a significant contribution to the education of children. Each school year, thousands of volunteers donate hundreds of thousands of hours of service to the school district. Volunteers contribute in areas such as library aide, workroom help, campus events, fundraisers, staff appreciation luncheons, mentoring, public relations, tutoring and assisting in instructional areas.


To create a Volunteer Portal Account go to cfisd.net > Community Involvement > Volunteer

VOLUNTEERS: PARENT, GRANDPARENT OR LEGAL GUARDIAN


If you are the parent, grandparent or legal guardian of a student enrolled in the CFISD school where you wish to volunteer, please register with the district by:

  1. Creating a Volunteer Portal Account (receiving your password from donotreply@raptortech.com may take up to 5 business days).
  2. Contacting your school’s Community Engagement liaison for additional volunteer opportunities at your campus.


A record of your volunteer hours is of vital importance to the school where you volunteer and to the district. Please remember to document all your volunteer hours in the Raptor Volunteer Portal. All volunteers who have recorded at least one volunteer hour in the current school year will receive an invitation to the annual VIPS Appreciation Luncheon.


It is very important that the information you enter on the form matches your government issued identification card including your full legal name. It is also important that you provide a valid email address so you can be notified as to the status of your account and for future communication. All information collected on the form will remain confidential and not be shared outside the volunteer program.


We love having so many parents helping here at Wells Elementary School.


The staff at Wells appreciate your time volunteering.
