Bear Reader Volunteers Wanted

The Bear Reader Team is looking for a few volunteers to help Total Class Minutes for Bear Reader Student Logs.

You can do this from home!!



Bear Reader-Help Total Class Minutes

Grades 1-5 Workroom

Come help out Grades 1 through 5 teachers by being an extra set of hands. All kinds of tasks are always available to do, and the teachers always appreciate the extra help. Teacher's jobs are not done when the kids go home, so helping out this way will help them in their "free" time! They give so much for our kids, so let's give back to them! We appreciate any time you can dedicate! Click here for the link to the SignUpGenius.
