Lunch & Recess Volunteers – IMPORTANT – VOLUNTEERS CONTINUE TO BE NEEDED
While we have fulfilled the original call for lunch volunteers through the winter, we have found there is a lot of value in continuing to ask for parent help during those crucial hours of the day. We will be posting a weekly sign-up to volunteer but parents should always feel free to come to school during the hours of 11am to 1pm to help for any amount they can.
Goals for the Volunteers
- Provide safer and more sanitary environment during lunch period
- Ensure a more orderly and better organized recess time for all our students
- Contribute in the work towards offering students choices for indoor recess Increasing the time students spend outdoors
- Improve the school experience of all PS10 students by strengthening the ties between families and the school
