Community Giveback Day

By Hazel Emery, M.Ed.

BoxBoyOn the last day of school we come together to pack up classrooms, move teachers’ materials into their next-year classroom, and button up the building for the summer. This is a wonderfully busy day, bringing a satisfying end to a successful year. It is also a work day for volunteer hours.

We will need a large number of volunteers to handle the many jobs, both large and small, that this day entails! To ensure you have plenty of energy, the Parent Council will be providing lunch to volunteers who sign up in advance. Please click here to sign up so we can have an accurate headcount for lunch.

A more detailed email with a schedule for the day will be sent in the next couple of days. This will be the last opportunity to get work-day hours in, so if you need hours, be sure to join us! You do not need to sign up but, as noted, lunch will only be provided for volunteers who have signed up in advance.

And, if you have boxes, we need them for packing up teachers’ belongings for the classroom moves. If you have spare boxes, please bring them in to the office. Thank you!
