Volunteers in Public Schools (VIPS) participating in Cypress-Fairbanks ISD schools make a significant contribution to the education of children. Each school year, thousands of volunteers donate hundreds of thousands of hours of service to the school district. Volunteers contribute in areas such as library aide, workroom help, campus events, fundraisers, staff appreciation luncheons, mentoring, public relations, tutoring and assisting in instructional areas.
IMPORTANT FOR FIRST TIME VOLUNTEERS:
If you are the parent, grandparent or legal guardian of a student enrolled in the CFISD school where you wish to volunteer, you must create a volunteer portal account with CFISD. The steps to volunteer are listed below.
- Create a Volunteer Portal Account and receive your account information and password from email@example.com (may take up to 5 business days).
- Contact your child’s, grandchild’s or legal dependent’s campus Community Engagement Liaison to learn about volunteer opportunities.
- Log your volunteer hours in the Raptor Volunteer Portal. All volunteers who have recorded at least one volunteer hour in the current school year will receive an invitation to the annual VIPS Appreciation Luncheon.
- Present your driver's license at the school's front desk each time you volunteer and ask the receptionist to sign you in as a volunteer (not a visitor).
If you have any questions about your volunteer status, please call 281-894-3950.

Volunteer of the Month
Who will be the Volunteer of the Month? Every month we honor the volunteer who has logged the most hours working for our kids. It is our way of thanking our hard-working VIP's. This honor gets your picture in the Horseshoe Review, a feature on CopelandPTO.org, our undying gratitude, and most importantly a reserved parking spot right up close in the school's front parking lot!
Janine Zener is our
Volunteer of the Month!
Janine has worked tirelessly with Ms. Buchert to make every book fair for the last several years a successful effort for the library and TONS of fun for the kids. She is involved with all of her kids at three different schools, and still takes the time to take this special care of our Colts!
Thanks for your service and your beautiful, contagious smile, Janine!
