Do you want to volunteer this year?

If so, you must complete a yearly volunteer background check! We love to have helpers at school for the following things: lunch helper, copy mom, field trip chaperone, and classroom helper. We recommend you do it now, even if you don't plan to volunteer until later in the year. Then it's done!

First Grade Lunch Helpers Needed

First Grade would like one parent helper to volunteer during our lunch time. Your job would be to stand in the lunch line and help students make their food choices in a timely manner, then help supervise the students at their tables during lunch time. Please click on the link below to sign up!

Copy Moms Needed

If you are interested in helping teachers out with their copies every Thursday, please use the link below to sign-up.

Copy Mom Sign Up

Transportation Changes

ALL transportation changes need to be made through Polly in the front office. If there is a change please notify the front office by no later than 2:15. Please do not email your child's teacher! We are no longer able to accept transportation changes by email, and we don't usually have time to check our email during the school day. Notifying the front office will ensure that your child goes home the correct way!
