Field Day Volunteer Signup – Field Day is quickly approaching, and we are in need of some volunteers to help facilitate the activity stations. If you can’t attend Field Day but would still like to contribute, we are also looking for popsicle donations for each session. Sign up to volunteer or donate popsicles here. The PTA asks that you sign up for Field Day as soon as possible!
Volunteer Signup – The PTA is beginning to plan our volunteer opportunities for the 2021-22 school year and will be using Sign Up to help us organize our volunteer efforts. This information helps us form committees, especially those that need to be up & running in August (i.e.: New Family Welcome, Room Reps, Copy Helpers and Welcome Back Party). Please sign up for what interests you and also keep in mind that while we are hopeful that all of these events can take place during the next school year, we will be following all District 58 guidelines:
- Click this link to view descriptions and signup: https://signup.
- Enter your email address: (You will NOT need to register an account on Sign Up)
- Choose your spots – Sign Up will send you an automated confirmation and reminders. Easy!
- Your name/email address will be shared with the committee chair, who will then contact you before the event/task to discuss details.
