Volunteer at CSE


 “The heart of a volunteer is not measured in size, but by the depth of the commitment to make a difference in the lives of others.”  –DeAnn Hollis


VIPS– Volunteers in Public Schools

We have many volunteer needs and opportunities this year at CSE.  There are jobs that need to be done in school as well as outside the school.  We have long term projects as well as short term volunteer opportunities.  Any bit of time you can give to the school makes a huge difference for our kids!

Here are some of the PTA committees for the current school year.  If any strike your fancy, contact our VP, VIPS/Membership for more information.  There are also many other volunteer opportunities available at CSE.

Reminder: You will also need to complete a FBISD Background check prior to volunteering at the school.  This can be found under the Useful links tab on the website..
