Vision & Hearing Screening Volunteers Needed:

I would love to have 6 vision screeners and 3 Hearing screeners.  We are hoping to only need them for 3 class periods so if they can sign up for the day that would help immensely but definitely not required!!
We need CERTIFIED Volunteers for these shifts:  (these volunteers will need to come with their certification card that they received when they took the vision/hearing screening class):
 5th & 3rd grades so that shift will be (8:55-11:40) There will be a 1 hour break in between.
1st grade shift will be in the afternoon at (2pm-2:55).
CROWD CONTROL Volunteers:  (no certification needed)
*  There are a lot more kids this year so I'm thinking maybe 12 volunteers per shift.  These volunteers will aid in noise control, keeping the lines moving, helping getting kids from holding area, and help with height and weight.




SRC - Science Resource Center Volunteer Opportunities - multiple training dates- look in PTO Calendar for details.

Volunteers are needed to learn the different demos offered by the SRC. A demo is a presentation centered on particular animals or scientific concept. The volunteer is trained in content and any specific handling skills needed for the animals. Demos are scheduled at all levels of instruction. Demos generally last one class period (30-50 minutes) and are presented to no more than 2 classes at a time. Multiple demos may be needed in order to accommodate all students in a grade level.

Junior Achievement Volunteers- all grades:

Junior Achievement is the world's largest organization dedicated to educating students in grades K-12 about entrepreneurship, work readiness and financial literacy through experiential, hands-on programs.

Our programs help prepare young people for the real world by showing them how to generate wealth and effectively manage it, how to create jobs which make their communities more robust, and how to apply entrepreneurial thinking to the workplace. Students put these lessons into action and learn the value of contributing to their communities.

JA's unique approach allows volunteers from the community to deliver our curriculum while sharing their experiences with students. Embodying the heart of JA, our classroom volunteers transform the key concepts of our lessons into a message that inspires and empowers students to believe in themselves, showing them they can make a difference in the world.

Men's Volunteer Opportunities-

Who are WatchDOGS and how does WATCH D.O.G.S. work?

WatchDOGS are fathers, grandfathers, uncles, and other father-figures who volunteer for at least one day each year at an official WATCH D.O.G.S. school.

WATCH D.O.G.S., a K-12 program, invites fathers, grandfathers, uncles, or other father figures to volunteer at least one day all day at their child’s/student’s school during the school year. Fathers and father figures sign up to volunteer through a ‘Launch Event’ such as a “Dads and Kids Pizza Night” or “Donuts with Dad” or by calling their child’s school any time throughout the school year. The program is overseen by a “Top Dog” volunteer who partners with the school administrator to coordinate scheduling and identify opportunities for WatchDOGS to provide assistance at the school. WatchDOG dads and volunteers perform a variety of tasks during their volunteer day including monitoring the school entrance, assisting with unloading and loading of buses and cars, monitoring the lunch room, or helping in the classroom with a teacher’s guidance by working with small groups of students on homework, flashcards, or spelling.
