FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS 

I want to volunteer, but all the classroom opportunities have been taken!  
Did you know that you can volunteer in the library during your child’s class library hour by helping children sign in/out books and assisting with shelving books, as needed? Or, that you could join your child for lunch?
 
As special events come up in the class, like field trips, parties or performances, so will the need for additional volunteers. Your Classroom Special Events coordinator will reach out to all of the parents to coordinate volunteers.
