Volunteers are needed!
We need parents willing to help out our teachers run the events and games, and/or give them 30 minute breaks. If you would like to volunteer and be a part of this year’s event, please complete the form sent home by your child’s teacher.
If you wish to give a teacher their break and are willing to run their game on your own, you must be an approved volunteer.
If you are interested in becoming an approved volunteer, which would also allow you to volunteer at our school throughout the year, you must first fill out an online application and be approved by the district. First time volunteer applicants pay $25 for a Florida Department of Law Enforcement background check in order to gain approval. This is a one time fee.
