• Volunteering
    Chaires Elementary LOVES our volunteers!  It is through the incredible support of our volunteers and community that we continue to be an A school.  You can volunteer from your home, office, or in a classroom.  You can volunteer before, after, or during the school day.  You can volunteer in our office, media center, or in a classroom.  There are so many opportunities, and we appreciate every minute of your valued time.

    Mentor a Child 
    Mentors work one to one with a child selected by a classroom teacher and our Guidance Counselor to help improve needed academic skills.  Many mentors read with a child 30 minutes once a week or work on math skills. For many children that is their favorite time of the week...when a person gives him/her that valued special attention.
