Volunteer once a year, once a month or once a week. Everything and anything makes a difference for our kids. If you're planning to help out in the classroom or with any of the fun PTA activities this year, you'll need to complete the Kent School District Volunteers in Public Schools (VIPS) form, including a valid, current ID and proof of vaccination. This form will need to be completed every year.
