Fort Worth ISD Celebrates National Volunteer Week April 23-29

Fort Worth, Texas - National Volunteer Week is a nationwide celebration of the collective power of volunteers in building stronger and more vibrant communities. It is a week to thank and recognize volunteers and, in doing so, inspire others.

Fort Worth ISD will join the nation in thanking all volunteers, particularly our school volunteers who have joined the District in preparing all students for success as scholars, professionals, and citizens. This year many new volunteers have stepped up to support the 100x25 FWTX Initiative that aims to have 100 percent of third-graders reading on or above grade level by the year 2025.

FWISD thanks all volunteers for helping students grow to be community leaders and productive citizens to our society. 

You are encouraged to celebrate with us and help make it a community-wide event by thanking those school volunteers you know with a call, an email, or a card.

You could also visit the FWISD Facebook page to share testimonials, photos or stories about school volunteers and some of the great things they are doing. If you send a photo to alma.pohler@fwisd.org with a sentence or two about what inspires you to volunteer in FWISD, it will be posted in the District’s Facebook and sent to the Points of Light photo gallery.

If you are one of our wonderful FWISD volunteers, visit the Fort Worth ISD Volunteer page for a digital volunteer badge to identify you as a proud FWISD volunteer.
