Lunch Room Volunteers Needed to Help Lunch Run Smoothly

Dear Parents,
With the start of a new school year lunchtime is a part of the school day that it always a bit hectic and unfamiliar for many students until they learn the routine.

We are looking for parent volunteers to come in during kindergarten, 1st, 2nd and 3rd grade lunch to assist our staff and help make the lunch room as enjoyable and easy for the students as possible. Volunteers will help with opening lunch items, getting children water/utensils/etc. answering questions, etc.

Below is the lunch schedule. If you volunteer for a day you will help with the primary grade lunches (k-3) 10:55-12:15.

Kindergarten – 10:55-11:15

1st grade – 11:15-11:35

2nd grade – 11:35-11:55

3rd grade – 11:55-12:15

Please sign up here

When you arrive for your volunteer time please sign-in at the front office and head to the cafeteria.

If you have any questions please contact:
Stacy Pullen, Assistant Principal,

Thank you all so much! Lets help the kids fuel up and be ready for an afternoon of learning and fun!
