Choice Time Volunteer Training

Dear Choice Volunteers,

We cannot thank you enough for the time and efforts you dedicate to working with our students during recess.

The activities provided during choice time have become increasingly popular and we have many students who would like to participate, including some of our students who suffer from severe food allergies. To help ensure the safety of all students we are inviting you to attend a 30 minute training session designed to assist individuals in recognizing the signs and symptoms of allergic reactions and administration of an Epi Pen. This training is not mandatory, but we wanted to extend each of you an invitation to participate.

The success of the school community depends on collaboration between our schools and families. The time and effort you dedicate to choice time with our students strengthens our school and provides unique opportunities for all of our students. Thank you for your continued support of this program.

If you wish to participate in the training program, please RSVP to Dawn Wallis, the school nurse at wallisd@hawthorn73.org

Training dates and times are as follows:

February 26th 9:00 am-9:30 am

February 29th 2:30 pm-3:00 pm

Choice Time Needs Volunteers!

Looking for a way to volunteer at school during the day?  Then Choice Time is perfect for you!  From November 30, 2015 through March 18, 2016 we offer an indoor alternative to recess for students in grades 1-5.  Games, Legos and Drawing will be be offered to 1st, 2nd, and 3rd graders. We would like to offer silent reading for 1st-5th graders if we have enough parent supervisors, Monday through Friday, to allow students the opportunity to add to the school-wide minute total for our Reading Around the World challenge. It is a 20 minute time frame per grade level, and it would help the school meet the 2 million minute reading goal this year.  Choice Time is the one time you can bring a younger sibling with you! You can volunteer one time, monthly, bi-weekly, weekly or even for various dates throughout the winter.  Look for sign-up forms in backpack mail next week, or download one HERE.
