Recess Volunteers Needed!

Our paraeducators could use extra eyes on the playground! Responsibilities include: walking around the playground and monitoring student behavior, looking for positive behavior (kind, safe, responsible) and rewarding with a lion coin, and reporting any unsafe behavior to a playground paraeducator.

In order to volunteer, you need to fill out an application with the school district. A link to the application is HERE. Once completed, email to obtain PTSA approval and receive a link to sign up. Thank you for helping our staff and students!
