Would you like to volunteer to help with the book fair? Let the front desk staff know! We will need help setting up, running the register, and packing up!!
Fronteras parents have a unique opportunity to help in our library classes. We have a team of wonderful volunteers who run library class for students and teachers. Each class meets weekly for 30 minutes. If you can’t commit to a class each week, we always need help shelving books, labeling, entering new books into the computer, book fairs and more. If you are interested in volunteering please stop in the library and you will find a clip board on the desk or email Jody at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
There are tall blue bins in each classroom around our building to place office and mixed paper, cardboard, aluminum cans, plastic bottles, stretched plastic, and more. This is a great opportunity for our 4th and 5th grade students to help out. We ask students to help one day each week during recess collecting materials and load them in the back of the school in our wonderful blue bins. This is where parents come in to take materials to our local recycling center!! This is a great way to get your volunteer hours, especially if you have a truck! If you are interested please let the front desk know or email Jody at email@example.com. More info for students coming soon.
