Support Help

You can provide a great service by supporting academic programs or assisting with clerical tasks — so teachers can concentrate on teaching!

Read Naturally is a structured program that helps kids improve reading skills through fluency training. The pilot program has been so successful that we want to expand it to more children. We have a list of students who would benefit – they’re just waiting for your help! You can do this valuable job in just one hour a week. Email Megan Sanchez for more info.

Help in the office between 7:30 and 8:30, one day a week.
Susan and Maria will work with you on things like filling out tardy slips, making copies and sorting mail. And, you get to share a smile with our wonderful students and staff!
Email to Julie Noble for more info.

A mentor meets with an assigned student once a week during lunch, and serves as a role model and special friend to the student. We know that mentorship works! You can make a big impact with a limited time commitment. For more information,
email to Elise Martens or call her at 841-1522.
