Volunteer Opportunities

OIS has an active volunteer community made up of parents who contribute their time to improve the middle school experience for all students. Our school relies on volunteers in many key areas and the Parents' Club counts on volunteers to manage many of the programs we proudly sponsor. Whether you prefer to work on campus or from home, there are opportunities for you to help. All parents are encouraged to volunteer in some way and your gift of time to our school is invaluable. Below is a list of some of the volunteer opportunities that are available to you. If you are interested in volunteering in a specific area, please email the appropriate volunteer contact.
