Volunteer & Donation Opportunities
The PTO is requesting donations of bottled water to replenish the "PTO Pantry" from which we supply water for multiple school events and meetings. What we need: Both the smaller size 8 oz bottles as it is easier for little hands, as well as the regular 12 oz bottles for adults. Mariana Jones will be available during pickup on Monday 5/8 and Tuesday 5/9 at 5:00 PM in the Parent Center to receive donations.
Miner Elementary ECE will be hosting our first Parent Orientation for newly enrolled and prospective parents on May 18 (see details here). Enrolling in a new school can be quite difficult, so that is why Miner would like to offer prospective and newly enrolled parents the opportunity to have a "Parent Sponsor" point of contact. The sponsor will provide guidance concerning enrollment, upcoming events and organizational positions here at Miner. This position will create a welcoming environment here at Miner, in addition to developing a fast rapport with incoming families. If you are willing to volunteer as a Parent Sponsor, we ask that you are flexible with who you may possibly sponsor. Any possible volunteers we ask that you reply to Dante Daniel (firstname.lastname@example.org) stating you would like to volunteer with your full name. The sponsor does not have to be present at the May 18 Parent Orientation event. A list of prospective families that request a sponsor will be taken then and further guidance will be forthcoming.
OTHER WAYS TO DONATE
All contributions to Miner Elementary Parent Teacher organization are tax-deductible.
