School has started and it is time again to think about an opportunity to support our schools. This is our 10th year of volunteering in our schools. We are in four grade schools: Hamilton, Roosevelt, Jefferson and Dry Creek. Our involvement is greatly appreciated by children, teachers and staff.
Some of the many 2017 Hamilton volunteers.
Many of the tutoring jobs are as simple as reading one on one with a child or practicing basic math facts with flash cards. Most of the jobs are usually 1 hour, once a week. As well as tutoring, we are providing twice monthly baked cookies to the staff and teachers at three grade schools this year.
Classroom Volunteers will start in mid-October.
Signup sheets are at the Connection Center.
Here are the specific opportunities for your consideration:
1. Basic Tutoring in Reading or Writing
2. Basic Tutoring in Math
3. Help Teachers with Paperwork Filing, copying, prep. for art projects, etc.
4. Helping Teachers with Occasional Special Projects
5. Accompany Students on Field Trips
6. Bake Cookies for the Staff
I will be providing information about background checks for tutors in the future.
I want to give a big THANK YOU to all our past volunteers. Our cookies are helping raise morale at the schools. With our classroom volunteers, it's amazing the difference just one hour a week makes in the lives of the children and teachers.
