CALLING FOR ART ROOM VOLUNTEERS

Hello Kindergarten and 1st Grade Parents!

Please sign up to help during your child’s art class!  This is a unique opportunity limited to Kindergarten and First Grade families only, and it’s such a fun way to see your child and his or her classmates enjoying the wonderful Art program at the Thoreau school.

Kindergartners attend Art once a week as part of a “block” on Wednesday mornings from 9:15-10 – volunteers stick around until 10:15 to help with clean-up.  A volunteer is needed from each of the five kindergarten classes, plus one extra “floater” is also needed.  This is an exciting new program for the Kindergarten classes that will incorporate movement and fun into our Art program!

Sign up here to volunteer for your Kindergartner’s class:
