All WOHS volunteers including SAC and PTSO need to sign up for ADDitions. All volunteers must register and be approved through the ADDitions Program according to district procedures. Please complete this process ASAP. You will only hear back if there is a problem with your application. Once submitted, you may begin logging your volunteer hours.
The West Orange HS Clinic is in desperate need of donations of feminine sanitary pads. They could use donations of clean athletic shorts or sweatpants/athletic pants in all sizes. They do not need to be new, but should be clean and in good repair. Thank you for any assistance you can provide!
It is time to sign up for OCPS ADDitions if you would like to volunteer on campus or chaperone a field trip during the school year.

You should be prompted to upload a photo, or if you have a webcam you can take one at that time. If you do not you will be required to have a photo taken and added the first time you come on campus to volunteer. So if at all possible please take care of this now.
Make sure to update your student info and the names of the schools you want to volunteer at – if you are having trouble locating this info go to EDIT PROFILE near top of screen – then on next screen near bottom click on GO TO TAB. Check each tab and make sure the info is updated and complete.
If you have difficulty selecting the schools – choose SHOW ALL SCHOOLS and scroll down to the West Orange Learning Community and check the schools that apply and then click SAVE APPLICATION or NEXT. IF you go back to that tab it should then have the correct schools.
If you are new to Orange County and/or ADDItions please use the left side of the screen to start a new registration. You will be guided through the process which can take up to 15 minutes.

Once your profile is crated and/or updated you can click on SEARCH OPPORTUNITIES. For West Orange High School – search by school and type in West Orange High. Be an ADDitional Volunteer should be an opportunity — it is not a specific job but rather a designation. Please choose it.
After that if you have already worked any volunteer hours this year please click on REPORT SERVICE and choose ADDitions School Volunteer:West Orange High:Add Volunteer Hours and enter the appropriate date range and total hours plus a brief list of what you did. You do NOT need to enter each volunteer job separately. Just put in the first date you volunteered for this school year as start date and then today as the end date and total your hours.
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE every volunteer hour counts towards West Orange High School’s eligibility for the Golden School Award. If you have worked any hours please log them NOW (see #6 above).
If you have any problems or questions please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will try to assist you.
