Fox Mill Volunteers

Fox Mill enjoys the support of an extensive volunteer program. Typically, volunteers work with students, assist in the library, help with art projects, perform clerical jobs, prepare instructional materials, or work on Parent Teacher Association (PTA) projects.

Volunteer information is available at Back-to-School-Night. Your child’s teacher and/or the PTA will have additional information. In order to maintain the integrity of instruction, younger siblings may not come in to volunteer during the school day.

Note: All visitors must have a photo ID to enter the school. Please note that between the hours of 7:45 a.m. and 4:15 p.m. all parents and visitors must enter through the front doors of the school, sign in at the front office, and pick up a visitor pass to wear while in the building.

FCPS Volunteers
