It is simply to make it easy for parents to get the supplies their child needs for the upcoming school year.

The Genius Hub is Ready

The Genius Hub is finished and we are ready for you! We have been working hard to change an underutilized area of our school into a place where students can learn from our community members. Yes, we need you. You have talents, areas of interest, and exciting things that you do that students would love to learn. This could include a hobby or craft, a book club, an interesting job, a helpful skill such as organization or presenting, or even just something fun! The Genius Hub needs you during the month of May to volunteer to work with a small group of 6-8 students for 30-45 minutes and teach them something that you love or that inspires you. You can do this once or twice in the month of May. Once we get your name through our form, we will send out a schedule where you can sign up for open times. This will be a great way to end the year and help our school teach students things they might not ever get the opportunity to learn in class. To sign up and receive a schedule, click the following link: https://goo.gl/forms/WBqx3Y05gDJP6RrL2
