FBC Community Partner volunteer Opportunities 

Sugar Creek Elementary School
FBC members help make Sugar Creek a wonderful place to be and they would love to have you volunteer in their school. If you are interested in donating your time you must complete the background form through Bushue. This has to be completed each year. You will not hear back from Unit 5 unless there is a problem. We do ask that you complete the background check at least 7 calendar days before you volunteer. Thank you for supporting our students and staff and being a part of our school community, your time is GREATLY appreciated!
