Volunteers

Volunteers are an important part of our school family. To maintain campus security, first time volunteer applicants pay $25 for a Florida Department of Law Enforcement background check.

Little Free Libraries

Little Free Libraries are little decorative waterproof boxes/containers with books inside. These LFL have been placed in communities to promote literacy and the love of reading. The only rule is to bring a book and take a book. Help spread the love of reading throughout Polk County by building or sponsoring a Little Free Library in your community.
