How can I join the VPO?

The Swift Water VPO is open to all parents and guardians of Swift Water Elementary Students! To join, you can sign up here.

Do I have to pay to join?

NOPE! The VPO is open to all Swift Water parents and guardians and does NOT charge membership fees.

What volunteer opportunities are available for me?

There are so many volunteer options! The list below are the committees we already have in place – some have volunteer chairs whilst others are waiting for that special person to take it and make it their own!  Even if there is a chair in place though – an extra helping hand never goes unneeded.  If you do not see a volunteer opportunity here that suits you, and would like to suggest your own, please get in touch with us!

Can I still participate if I cannot attend all the meetings?

We just ask that you fulfill the requirements of the committees you do choose to be a part of during the year.

I joined the mailing list but haven't received anything yet? What's going on?!

Oh no! So sorry about that! We are currently using the free version of MailChimp which is great for our budget, but sometimes a pain for our deliverability rates.

Please check your Spam or Junk folder for an email from Swift Water VPO. When you locate it, please add our contact information to your VIP list so our future emails go directly to your inbox. 

If you have already tried that and still don’t see a message from us, please email the Communications Coordinator directly and they can add your information manually.

Thanks for your patience!
