Upcoming Events Including Volunteer Opportunities!!
Thank you in advance!
At the meeting we discussed many of the upcoming school events and focused on volunteer opportunities. If you would like to get more involved, we would love to have your energy, creativity and enthusiasm at school! Listed below are a variety of volunteer opportunities. There is a contact person for each event. Thank you in advance for your help making LaPerche a great place to go to school!
Before You Can Volunteer!
Forms can be returned directly to LaPerche and we will deliver them to the Smithfield Police Department. You must include a clear copy of your license with your BCI form. You may also drop the form off at the Smithfield Police Department from 7:30-4:00 Monday through Friday. They will not make copies of your license.
Volunteer training takes about 15 minutes and is scheduled for Friday, September 11 at 8:20 a.m. and Tuesday, September 15 at 3:30.
Family Folders--Weekly Communication from LaPerche
FYI--Please remove all flyers from your family folder and return it to school empty. All communication back to school should be sent in your child's homework folder. Also, because we are working to reduce our use of paper, at times there will not be any items for family folders and they will not be sent home.
Funny4Funds Committee Meeting--Monday, September 14 from 7:00-8:00
Come out and join us on Monday, September 14 at 7:00 at LaPerche! Email Mrs. Bazinet at firstname.lastname@example.org if you plan to join us! We need a strong committee to lend a hand to make this fundraiser a great success!
Open House--Thursday, September 17, 2015--5:30-7:30
During Open House families can also visit our Scholastic Book Fair which will be held in the gym. Are you available to help with the book fair? We need volunteers to set up, sell the books the evening of Open House, and break down the fair. If you are interested in volunteering please contact Sherri Briggs at email@example.com.
Additionally, during Open House our 5th grade class will be hosting a bake sale and "Paw the Door" table! The 5th grade students will be selling $1 "paws" on which individuals can write a welcome back message to staff and students. The paws will be posted on the classroom doors! Thank you in advance for supporting the 5th grade fundraiser.
Back To School BBQ--Friday, September 18, 2015
We are looking for volunteers to help with set up, breakdown, registration and food preparation. If you are interested in helping at the BBQ please email Kristen Guilfoyle at firstname.lastname@example.org.
L.E.A.P.--LaPerche Elementary Afterschool Enrichment Program
LaPerche mom, Elisha Geller, runs the program and is looking for volunteers to help check students into the programs at the school dismissal time and to check them out at the end of the program. She also needs a few volunteers to remain in the building while the programs are running. Although she has a few programs lined up for the Fall, we are always looking for new ideas for classes. If you have a special talent you would like to share by teaching a class or would like to volunteer in any capacity please email Elisah at email@example.com.
Outdoor Fun Festival--Friday, September 25--1:30-3:00
If you would like to volunteer to assist at our Outdoor Fun Festival please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Volunteers will be asked to set up stations, monitor the stations and supervise students. Volunteers will also be needed to clean up. Thank you in advance for your assistance!!
