It takes a small army to make Frey Spark a success. We try to give every parent an opportunity to be a foot soldier in our army of volunteers. If you are interested in volunteering in our community, go to your account and select which committees you want to be a part of. Committee time committment varies from a couple hours in a year to several hours each week, but it is up to you how much time you give.

Commit time throughout the year to attend events and take pictures.

As part of our yearbook committee, you will help organize, sell, collect, and distribute yearbooks. If you love photography then we'd love you to share your pictures with us. There are various events during the year at school that we'd love to include in the yearbook, so to ensure each grade and event receive equal coverage in the yearbook, we ask for anyone with the ability to take high-resolution images to share them with us.
