West River Head Start
Be Involved at Head Start
We encourage all Head Start parents to have an active part of West River Head Start. The classroom and offices are open to you at all times.
Your participation is needed to develop a program that is responsive to the needs of your children and your family. Also, the staff needs your help to provide the many services to you and your child. We need volunteers to assist in every part of the program.
Volunteering DIRECTLY helps our Head Start program. Head Start programs that show support from their communities continue to receive money!
Gain a better understanding of your child and how to best meet his/her needs.
Enjoy the special time spent with your child. You are really needed and very much appreciated!
Would a grandparent or other family member like to volunteer? Talk to your child's teacher to make the arrangements.
