There are always many opportunities to get involved and lend a helping hand. In addition to the events mentioned above, here are some ways we most need your help at this time:
- Help at The Power House, our Student Store: The student run school store is open during the lunch period and needs parents present to oversee operations. Our goal is to be open every day, but we need help to make that happen! We need parents for 20 minutes for each lunch shift. Please contact Nilla Persson for more information at email@example.com
- Be a Lunch Monitor. Be a part of your child's day by spending half an hour at school for lunchtime activity and outside supervision -- without enough lunch monitors, the kids don't get outside play time. It is super easy and doesn’t take much time. Three people needed every full school day. Schedule your preferred days and times. Sign up here.
- Help with Art Literacy: Grade level coordinators and team members needed to present Art Literacy lessons and assist with hands on art projects throughout the school year. Lessons tie in to current curriculum. Click here for more information.
