Current Volunteering Opportunities
- LIBRARY VOLUNTEERS (Dates and Times flexible) Do you love books? Enjoy the quiet library environment? Have a few hours each week to spare? Miner seeks a few volunteers to help out in the library April-June with student book checkout and to re-shelve books. No particular expertise is required, however, a general knowledge of library cataloging is a bonus. Point of Contact: Principal Mial (email@example.com)
- ECE SUNSHADE INSTALLATION (Wednesday, April 26 from 5:00 - 5:30 PM) The weather has warmed up to the point where it’s time to reinstall the two blue sunshades over the ECE playground. These help give some added protection from the midday sun to our youngest Bears during recess. Weather permitting, the PTO will be installing the shades on Wednesday, April 26, from 5:00 to 5:30 pm. A couple of volunteers are needed to help out with the rigging. Point of Contact: David Treat, PTO President (firstname.lastname@example.org)
- SATURDAY SCHOLARS (Saturday, April 29, from 9:00 AM - Noon) Saturday Scholars is a new program at Miner that provides kids in grades 3-5 extra tutoring in ELA (English Language Arts) and Math, to help boost them to the next level of proficiency in the PARCC testing which starts later this spring. Each Saturday there are two 75 minute sessions. Point of Contact: Ms. Noakes, Dean of Students (email@example.com)
- SECOND ANNUAL COMMUNITY YARD SALE (Saturday, May 6, from 8:00 AM - 1:30 PM) Call for volunteers! Help us sort and sell our pile of donated goods to raise money for Miner! Opportunities to help out on Thursday 5/4, Friday 5/5, and Saturday 5/6. Any help you can provide would be more than welcome. And don't forget to bring your donations to the room across from the cafeteria (Storage Room) this week and next week. Sign up here: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/30e084dafa823abfb6-miner2.
