Vision & Hearing Screening Volunteers Needed:

I would love to have 6 vision screeners and 3 Hearing screeners. We are hoping to only need them for 3 class periods so if they can sign up for the day that would help immensely but definitely not required!!

We need CERTIFIED Volunteers for these shifts: (these volunteers will need to come with their certification card that they received when they took the vision/hearing screening class):

5th & 3rd grades so that shift will be (8:55-11:40) There will be a 1 hour break in between.

1st grade shift will be in the afternoon at 2:55-3:50.

CROWD CONTROL Volunteers: (no certification needed)

* There are a lot more kids this year so I'm thinking maybe 12 volunteers per shift. These volunteers will aid in noise control, keeping the lines moving, helping getting kids from holding area, and help with height and weight.
