Astor School offers many fun events for students and the community during the school year that cannot occur without volunteers to make them possible. Many of these activities are sponsored by the Astor PTSO, but some are just part of everyday life at Astor.

Volunteering gives you the opportunity to participate in your child's education - with whatever time or talent you have. There are a wide variety of programs and events that require different skills, interests and time commitments.

How do I sign up?

Text @astorvol to 81010 to receive texts about volunteer opportunities throughout the year.
