Thank you for your continued and generous support of Pope Elementary! For all questions, please contact Felicia Choi at firstname.lastname@example.org
Science Resource Center (SRC)
Are you interested in helping with your child's class 2-3 times a year? Do you love animals? Science? If so, then the Science Resource Center (SRC) is the place for you. Each grade level at Pope has 2-3 presentations at the school, and we could use your help for just an hour or the whole day. Some demos, like arthropods, hedgehogs, and reptiles involve live animals. Others, like mammal skulls and eggs & nests, do not.
We are looking for volunteers to hold animals, speak in front of kids, and to run the slide shows. You don't do it all - just pick what you like. Any class, any grade, and any level of involvement would be a huge help to us and the kids.
Email email@example.com for more information on how to get involved.
Below are the training classes held in September:
Sept 21 - 5th grade bird study skins
Sept 27 - Kindergarten guinea pigs
Sept 29 - 2nd grade insects
