Volunteers Make a Difference!

Volunteer Coordinator, Danielle D. Persons, is available on Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday. If you have any questions or concerns email Danielle at or contact by phone at 623-546-7225.

Volunteer Requirements:

All volunteers must submit a completed PHES volunteer packet prior to volunteering on campus. For safety reasons, all volunteers working consistently with or around students must have a fingerprint background check annually unless they have a valid Fingerprint Clearance Card. If you already have a Fingerprint Clearance Card, submit a copy to be added to your volunteer packet.

Field trip chaperones must be fingerprinted and approved 6 weeks prior to a scheduled field trip or have a copy of their Fingerprint Clearance card in their file. The Arizona Department of Public Safety’s processing fee for volunteers is $20.00 for the first time and then $5.00 each following year.

Please contact Danielle Persons at 623-546-7225 or by email at to schedule an appointment to be fingerprinted or if you have any questions concerning these  requirements.

We appreciate your volunteer services here at Paradise Schools!

We are excited to have you as a part of  this year’s volunteer team!

If you are interested in becoming a volunteer at Paradise Schools or a field trip chaperone; please take a few minutes to read the volunteer information packet and fill out the volunteer application.  Then turn it into the front office to be processed.
Our Mission as volunteers is to provide teachers and staff with the extra time and help they need to make the educational process more effective. This is of great value in itself, but we also have an added benefit. Current research indicates that a greater involvement on the part of parents and guardians in the education of their children generally results in higher achievement scores, improved student behavior and reduced absenteeism.

With all these advantages for our children, we can’t help but be a winning team!

Paradise Honors Elementary Schools mission is to provide a safe learning community committed to fostering personal growth and academic excellence.

Thank you,

Principals:  Amy MacWilliams and Allison Gonzales
