Registering as a Parent Volunteer is not a time commitment. However, it does open up a world of opportunities for you to support THE Cary High School! There will be calls for field trip chaperones, office support, Spanish-language translators, proctors, etc. as the school year progresses. You must be registered as a volunteer in the Wake County Public School System to participate in most of these opportunities.
How do I register? You can register at a designated computer station at any Wake County Public School. You may stop by Cary High during the school day, or sign up at the Open House on September 18. (Even if you have children in multiple WCPSS schools, you only need to register once per school year.) I registered last year. Do I have to register again? YES! You must renew your registration every school year.
The 2014/2015 Cary High School Parent Volunteer Coordinator is Assistant Principal Jamal Woods. He will be sending out calls for volunteers beginning this fall. Thank you for taking a few minutes to register as a CHS Parent Volunteer!
