Students are also aided by the Dad's Club, an organization primarily responsible for special projects, and guided by Eric Lochbrunner.
The America Reads Program, consisting of generous volunteers, comes each Monday and Wednesday to read with individual children. Gayle Silvernagel organizes this program.
Local Boy Scout and Girl Scout Troops meet weekly in the school auditorium.
