END-OF-YEAR SURVEY 

The board needs your feedback! Little Wonders is the magical place that it is because of all of you, so please tell us what worked well this year and what we could improve upon by taking our End-of-year Survey. The board will review the information and make recommendations and changes based on your feedback. The survey will take ~10 minutes to complete and we’d appreciate it if you could complete it by May 15. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

COMING BACK TO LITTLE WONDERS NEXT YEAR? SIGN UP FOR A PRE-REG JOB
More than ever Little Wonders needs our veteran families to step up and assume some leadership roles. Please consider taking on a pre-registration job! Families assigned to a pre-registration job will receive their first choice class for the fall 2020-21 school year.

Pre-registration jobs include some assistants to the Board members, photography coordinator, records team, class liaisons/photographers and a number of others. Check our website for a list of jobs that are pre-reg. If interested, please email jobs@littlewonders.org and let Nicolette know which job you’d be interested in. We are happy to connect you with the person currently in that role so you can find out if this is a good fit for you.
