Many hands make light work! Work days are our most effective way to accomplish larger scale projects. They also help project planning and completion, help build community, and show the children what’s involved in supporting the school.
In the next few weeks, you will receive an “event” email asking you to sign up for one of the work days. Mr. Vargo has scheduled the following work days for the first half of the school year:
- August 10 (1:00 – 5:00 p.m.)
- August 17 (9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.)
- September 14 (9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.)
- October 12 (1:00 – 5:00 p.m.)
- November 9 (9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.)
- November 16 (5:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.)
Additional days for late winter and spring will be announced in December. Families who do not sign up for a work day will have a day assigned to them. We are so grateful for the dedication our families bring to volunteering. In order to channel our communities talents for group projects, we have our enrollment contract specify that 20% of service hours (for most families, this is six hours) be fulfilled during scheduled work days.
