VOLUNTEER AT SCHOOL

Morning Supervisor Volunteers Needed

Can you bring your child to school a little early and volunteer for about 25 minutes? About once a month the staff has a meeting and they need our help. Possible volunteer jobs are: reading to Kindergarteners, monitoring students in the gym, helping students off the bus, etc. Sign up.

Hot Lunch

We need volunteers to help run our hot lunch program. Spend an hour at lunch to help hand out hot lunches. If the sign up is full, check back often as spots do open up from time to time. Sign up using this form.

Did you know you can order hot lunch from local restaurants 4 days a week! Just don’t forget that the ordering window closes at 10am on Thursday the week prior. Visit this site to order hot lunch for your student. 

Bulldog Boutique

Volunteer in the school foyer and help students shop for prizes using their hard-earned Bulldog Bucks. Sign Up

Philanthropy

A do-good twofer! The annual Winter Coat drive begins on Monday. Please donate new or gently used coats, boots, hats (any winter gear) for children ages 0-18. AND, we’re helping Shabonee with their Sneaker Drive. Any new or used sneakers can be donated as long as they’re athletic shoes and donated in same size pairs. There will be a bin in the foyer to donate either drive. The PTA will sort. Thank you in advance for your generosity!

Zero Waste Lunch

Our environmental committee is striving for one zero waste lunch on 10/14. If you’d like to participate, please only send reusable containers in your child’s lunch that day. More details coming soon.
