Volunteers also need proof of a TB within the last 4 years, current ID, and fingerprinting (if planning to volunteer more than 2 days a week).

Ms. Sienna, our Military and Family Life Counselor, is serving our military families again this year! The military counselors provide short-term, non-medical counseling to support military students through difficult adjustments, such as deployments, and improve your child’s emotional well being by engaging in fun, interactive activities in individual, group, and parent group sessions.
