CALLING ALL VOLUNTEERS!!!
The Spring Carnival planning team needs YOU to make carnival happen this year! Please follow the link to our volunteer sign up. An hour of your time could make all the difference. We also welcome teen volunteers for some positions. It's a great way for your student to get service hours in!!
Here are a few ideas to #ThankATeacher:
- Have your child create a handmade card to say "Thanks".
- Help your child create a "Certificate of Appreciation" on the computer to recognize those special educators.
- Send in flowers or candy - a sweet treat is a great way to show your gratitude.
- Don't forget our specials teachers and aides! They are an important part of a student's day too!

Penny Road Field Day is coming soon & we need many volunteers!
Wednesday, June 7th grades K-1
Thursday, June 8th Grades 2-5
Plan to spend a fun-filled morning or afternoon with your child. Field Day is a day of fun and games to celebrate the end of the school year for your child(ren) and is one of the children’s favorite days of the year. We need at least 40 volunteers per session to make this a success. This is our biggest volunteer need all year. Volunteers will help direct the children through the games or help with refreshments. Your part is easy – no athletic skills required. All the children participate – so you’ll be sharing your time with your child as they pass through the game you are helping with.
We need one or two special volunteers for each session to be our water person. This special position will be responsible for hooking up hoses, filling up the water containers at the water stations, making sure all water stations have a continuing supply of water during field day times and gathering the hoses on Friday afternoon at the completion of field day events. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in serving in this role. It is desperately needed!
Parents are welcome to stop by and watch but we may recruit you to volunteer! Please understand that the field activities and snacks are for current Penny Road students, teachers and volunteers only. Thank you for understanding.
*We are asking for donations of bottled water to keep all of our volunteers well-hydrated. Please drop all donations off in the gym by Tuesday, June 6th.
Fill out the slip linked below and return it to school by June 5th OR go to Konstella to sign-up.
Thank you for volunteering!
