Want to Volunteer?
We have a new volunteering opportunity at Ramsey! Beginning February 7th, the afterschool program (Flipside) will host a "Homework Help" class. The session will be led by a Math Corps team member, but it would be great to have one or two extra adults in the room to help kids out!
"Homework Help" will meet on Mondays and Wednesdays from 3 - 5 PM. f you are interested or want more information, you can reach out to Ramsey's Flipside Coordinator, Teanna, at firstname.lastname@example.org. This position is very flexible! Can you only commit to Mondays? Can you only commit to Mondays in March? Or even just one Monday or Wednesday here or there? We can probably make that work. Just ask Teanna!
**Please note that volunteers will be required to pass a background check (the Ramsey PTO gladly covers the cost of this), as well as certifying with the district that they are either vaccianated against COVID or testing weekly for possible infection. Masks are required inside Ramsey.
