Katy ISD Partners in Education Invites Community to Volunteer

By George Slaughter

The Katy Independent School District’s Partners in Education program is looking for volunteers.

The program, called PIE, is kicking off the 2021-22 school year by sharing information about how volunteers can become involved. Towards that end, the program has released a brochure that provides information on how volunteers can find a role to play.

The brochure provides a look into all PIE programs, and the multi-national, multi-cultural, and multi-generational volunteers who bring them to life. Prospective volunteers can hear straight from parents, principals, volunteers, mentors and business partners about how PIE programs are impacting the next generation. Programs featured include KEYS Mentoring, Volunteers in Public Schools (VIPS), Sister Schools, Business & Community Partnerships and more.

“Each year, thousands of volunteers support Katy ISD teachers and students through a variety of opportunities offered by Partners in Education. Their roles are innumerable: some requiring ongoing, faithful commitment, others shorter term,” Janet Theis, Katy ISD executive director of community partnerships, said. “Yet each volunteer is of great significance to our schools and community.”

The interactive version of the marketing brochure is on the PIE website and limited quantities of the print version are available.

The PIE program creates school-support opportunities for parents, businesses and the community by offering a wide variety of options amenable to every schedule, talent and expertise. It connects every Katy ISD campus and for all grade levels. To learn more, visit the website or contact Kelly Clarke, Katy ISD  partnership coordinator at 281-396-2428 or at kellyclarke@katyisd.org.
