Volunteering is a great way to support Taylor Middle School and get to know other members of our community. There are a wide variety of volunteer opportunities, with both small and large time commitments. We ask all parents to volunteer for at least one hour this school year. I would like to receive email on volunteer opportunities.
Some volunteer opportunities require volunteer clearance. Clearance involves getting finger printed once for $67, answering a tuberculosis questionnaire, and giving the forms to the school office. Let Taylor PTA know you will get volunteer clearance. We are stronger together!
