First Two Weeks of School Volunteers Needed!

We need a lot of helpers the first couple weeks as kids transition back to school.

  • The kids will need help navigating Drop Off/Pick up lanes, having their bus numbers written on their hands and finding the correct bus.
  • New families to the school will need help with greeting and finding their way to get their kids to the right classrooms.
  • Volunteers are needed to help kids get through the hot lunch lines and to their tables as well as reminding them to eat when there's all this stimulation around them!
  • Staff will need extra eyes during recess to make sure kids are safe, know boundaries, and get back to class on time.

REMEMBER TO VOLUNTEER, YOU MUST HAVE YOUR VOLUNTEER APPLICATION COMPLETED - either a new application or renewal of previous application.
