Project Connect

Our Kids Are Worth It

What is Project Connect?

Project Connect is an employee volunteer program, (i.e. open to school district employees only) providing support for various needs within our schools.

Support staff that typically do not work at a school, have the opportunity to connect with students and contribute to our District’s Mission and Purpose. Each employee may use up to the equivalent of 3 days (eg. regular hours per day x 3 days = total project connect hours) per calendar year.

Project Connect is a chance to use your talents and skills to make a difference in our schools. Participation in this initiative reinforces our collaborative efforts to help students be successful. Project Connect is a rewarding experience which benefits staff and students.

This grassroots program has been designed by support staff.

“Everyone can be great, because everyone can serve…” Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
