The children see their parents volunteering as classroom volunteers, guest speakers, traffic monitors, playground supervisors, and Webster supporters! Our students interact regularly with community members who contribute their knowledge, energy, and talents to their educational experiences. These include Deputy Jake, the Sheriff’s STAR Program deputy, Pepperdine students who serve as reading tutors, and the representatives of non-profits like Shane's Inspiration and Bookends, with which our students are involved.
