From the Principal:

Lunch recess is a lively and fun environment for students who actively enjoy 4-Square, 2-Touch, kickball, tetherball, basketball, soccer, and playing on the playground as well as many other games and activities.

Carlton is seeking volunteers to help monitor the blacktop, field and playground during lunch recess from 12:00-12:50 daily.

Responsibilities for volunteer yard duty are pretty simple:

  • Monitor and observe students, looking for possible safety issues
  • Help students resolve disagreements
  • Reward students good behavior by passing our Cougar Code tickets
  • Possibly lead a lunchtime game/activity of your interest

We are seeking volunteers who can commit to a regular volunteer time frame (i.e. every Wednesday and Thursday, every Monday, etc.). This will allow us to create a basic schedule to ensure that we have sufficient coverage every day of the week. We are also more than happy to have parents just drop in to help whenever they can, without committing to a regular schedule.

If you are interested in volunteering as a lunch recess yard duty (and getting to wear the high fashion yellow vest!), please send an email to my Assistant, Danielle Enos at Be sure to let D know if you are able to commit to a regular schedule or are interested in just dropping in to help from time to time.

Thanks so much for your support!
