Public School Volunteer Week is being celebrated throughout the Olympia School District Monday, April 18 through Friday, April 22.

Superintendent Patrick Murphy read a proclamation during the April 14 Olympia School Board meeting recognizing April 18-22 as Public School Volunteer Week. The local recognition coincides with both the state and national Public School Volunteer Week.

Murphy recognized OSD Volunteer Coordinator Steve Desselle on behalf of all volunteers throughout the district and thanked him for his work.

The proclamation states in part that volunteers “are an integral part of student learning, play an important role in the education of students and provide a valuable partnership link with our community.” It also states that volunteers “inspire success in students while nurturing and challenging them to extend beyond their reach.”

Thank you, volunteers, for all you do for our schools!
