Public School Volunteer Week is April 15-19
Steve Desselle and Scott NiemannPublic School Volunteer Week is being celebrated throughout the Olympia School District Monday, April 15 through Friday, April 19, 2024. This is a weeklong celebration honoring the contributions of volunteers in public schools.

Executive Director of Human Resources Scott Niemann read a proclamation during the March 28 Olympia School Board meeting recognizing April 15-19 as Public School Volunteer Week.

During the March 28 Board meeting Niemann recognized OSD Volunteer Coordinator Steve Desselle on behalf of all volunteers throughout the district and thanked him for his work. More than 3,700 parents, students and community members have given 28,360 hours this year of their time as volunteers in our schools.

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!
