Current Volunteer Opportunities
- Sign up for a Faculty Birthday! To make the faculty feel extra special, please consider signing up HERE to buy a birthday lunch for a faculty member. Using SignUp Genius, you choose a faculty member you want to bring lunch in for and then coordinate with that faculty member what he or she would like for lunch and when. You then buy the lunch and make arrangements to deliver it to school yourself or use a delivery service. It makes everyone’s day! Families of each grade level also will be hosting a monthly luncheon for the teachers so look for those requests in the weekly news blasts and emails.
