Volunteers can really make a big difference in the educational experience for our students. From helping out in the classroom, supervising a field trip, to reading with students, volunteers are welcome and appreciated at all of our schools. And whether you’re interested in a one-time, one-hour project or an ongoing opportunity, we can find something for you!
To ensure that everyone has access to the resources they need, a new resource activated nationwide during the summer of 2022, is the 988 Suicide & Crisis Lifeline.
The Lifeline provides 24/7 free, confidential support to people in distress; prevention, and crisis resources for you or your loved ones. Call or text 988 or chat at 988lifeline.org/chat.
St. Helens School District will be one of four districts featured in this year’s Promise of Oregon campaign. Starting on January 3, 2023, students will be featured each week on the campaign website, explaining in their own words why they represent the Promise of Oregon.
In partnership with St. Helens School District, the St. Helens United Methodist Church provides district students with additional food to take home at the end of the week. The program is called the St. Helens Community Backpack Program and its goal is that no student goes hungry, even on the weekends. The St. Helens Community Backpack Program is open to all SHSD students and is free of charge.
