Volunteering At Kenwood is even easier than ever!

We are so lucky to be a part of a school community where over 350 parents volunteer every year — in a school of 461 students! Participating in school events such as Family Activity Night and the Kenwood Carnival has become much easier this year, thanks to the online software program we are using called sign up genius. When you receive an e-mail about a volunteer opportunity from volunteer4kenwood@gmail.com, you will be able to click on a link to a volunteer sign-up sheet via Sign Up Genius. There you can select a volunteer committment and receive a reminder e-mail two days before the event. If you haven't seen one of these e-mails yet, please contact Lori Smith at volunteer4kenwood@gmail.com to add your e-mail to our volunteer list. As, always, thank you for everything you do for our thriving Kenwood School community!
