From April 15 to April 21, National Volunteer Week will be celebrated in calling to the public’s attention all that volunteers do to improve our communities. National Volunteer Week was created in 1974 when President Richard Nixon signed an executive order to establish the week as an annual celebration of volunteering. And every year since that time, each U.S. President, along with many governors, mayors and other elected officials, has signed a proclamation promoting National Volunteer Week. During National Volunteer Week communities can show tribute to individuals who dedicate themselves to take action and support their communities.
Devine ISD would like to publicly thank and honor all the many parents and community members who tirelessly work to support and enhance campus and group activities. A special thank you to the district’s recognized parent groups: Devine Elementary and Intermediate PTO, Devine Middle School PTO, Devine Athletic Boosters, and Devine Band Boosters for their dedication in helping to enrich the school’s participation in educational and extracurricular activities.
Additionally, DISD would like to express their appreciation to all individuals and businesses who continue to reach out and support our schools in so many ways. Their contributions of time and talent not only benefit the students and staff, but their selfless acts of service to our community and school help set examples to the youth of Devine. Devine ISD is very fortunate to have such dedicated volunteers and many will be recognized this week at individual campuses.
