Parents – My husband TJ and I are excited to be the room parents for Ana Gates’ 4th grade class at Weatherstone this school year. We have opportunities for you to volunteer in the classroom, and we hope you’ll sign up to help. There will be two types of classroom activities held. First, STEM (science, technology, engineering & math) Fridays will occur once a month in Oct, Nov, Jan, Feb & March and will be led by volunteers from outside the school who have expertise in the specific areas of study. Second, Fun Fridays will occur once a month, and will consist of parent-led crafts/games/activities and a healthy snack from 3-3:30 right before the school day ends. We will need 2-3 parents to help with each event. Below is the schedule for both STEM Fridays and Fun Fridays. We will send a Sign Up Genius notice in the next few days to facilitate easy tracking of volunteers throughout the year. If anyone knows for sure they can help next Friday 10/19 for our first STEM Friday, please feel free to email me right away. Thanks again in advance for your support!
** Will take place from 9:15am-10:15am on the Fridays listed below.
** Please arrive no later than 9am and be prepared to stay until 10:30am for set up/clean up.
