Art In the Classroom
Parent volunteers go into the classroom during class time carved out by the teacher to work with children on an art project. These projects will then be used to decorate the school during the Art Show. Parent volunteers are needed to be in the classroom and lead the art lesson with the students.
Artist in Residency
The PTO invites an artist from a myriad of genres to come into the school and interact with the children for a day, a few days, a month, or even year long. The artist in the past has included muralists, authors, and musicians.
Classics in the Classroom
A program in which parent volunteers visit each classroom a few times a year to introduce different styles of classical music in a fun and creative way.
The PTO, working with the principal, organizes various events to come to our school and put on an assembly for the student body. In the past, this has included “The Brain Game” and Chinese Acrobats. Parent volunteers are needed to book and organize the presenters.
Parent volunteers are needed to act as a lead to all Homeroom parents. They will disseminate information to the individual class homeroom parents and relay the needs and wants of the class to the PTO and administration. These parents also work with Mr. Kershaw to provide snacks for Field Day.
Young Writer’s Day
A magical day when about twenty authors, illustrators, and singer/songwriters visit the school and work with every class to get their creative writing juices flowing. Volunteers act as escorts for the Authors. The program provides more humanities education to the students.
