Classroom Advocates Needed

Classroom advocates play an important role in communicating information to parents. Many teachers utilize their classroom advocates to reiterate important information, coordinate volunteers for field trips, and classroom activities, as well as communicate information from the school’s office. We are asking for volunteers to be their child’s classroom advocate for the upcoming 2018–2019 school year. Please note, advocates must be able to communicate information in a timely manner via-email, as some information is time sensitive. Please return the advocate volunteer form to the office by September 28, 2018, if you would like to volunteer for this roll.
