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 2pm 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

Please sign up for a recess/lunch period at this link.
