Thursday Volunteer Information - Available now - 2nd Quarter Sign-up
What is it?
Thursday volunteers is an opportunity for adults within our community to come in for a couple hours to help teachers' complete tasks that are needed as prep for lessons and activities. You will help all teachers, not just your child’s teacher.

Tasks could include copies, cutting, tearing and sorting workbook pages, laminating, art project prep, making games and game pieces, die-cut, etc. There will be things that someone other than the teacher can work on.
When is it?
Every Thursday we have school from 9:00am to 11:00 am. Signups are sent out by quarter. The dates are on the signup genius below. There are 5 spots for volunteers each week. You can do 1 Thursday, a couple Thursdays, all the Thursdays. Sign up for what fits your availability.
What do I do on the day of volunteering?
Enter our office and sign in. They will give you a quick directions sheet to read over and can direct you to the Thursday Volunteers spot in the lounge where all of the tasks needed completion will be.
