recess committee

Committee Coordinator:  Jennifer Fujita

Our goal is to allow students to have more time outside at recess. 

 As a volunteer, your responsibilities would be to help students open lunches at the start of the lunch period, help initiate clean up, assist students with putting on coats, and work with teachers/aides to escort the children to the playground/field. You may also be asked to help bring school equipment out to the field and return it at the end of the recess period.

 We’ll work with whatever your schedule allows.  Lunch times are as follows:  Lunch Period 1:  11-11:45 (grades K-1) and Lunch Period 2:  11:45-12:30 (grades 2-3)

 If you’re interested in volunteering, please go here and answer a few questions -- contact info and availability.  We’ll be in touch to confirm scheduling and share the process.

Thanks in advance to all who can help out!
