Kinder Parents

“Help foster independence in your kids! We ask that, Kindergarten parents not walk their children to class. It’s an important step in their development, and in getting ready for 1st grade. If your kid likes to be dropped off directly, we suggest having a conversation with them before you get to school. Let them know that they are doing the same things the big kids are. If your kids are nervous, bring them a few minutes early for a hug in the lobby before they walk to class.”

Recess Committee

Parent Volunteers Needed

We need parent volunteers who can start at least one activity on the playground and keep an eye on things. It can be running a soccer game, teaching jump rope, getting chalk going, hula hoop, or whatever is fun! Recess supports physical activity, social-emotional growth, and even test scores, but it's more effective with a little structure.

You can be a literal game changer!

Just an extra person to zip up coats, sweep trash, and zip up coats would go so far to help our kids and hard-working staff!
Commit to one day or several, it's totally flexible. Thank you for what you can contribute!
