The Congdon Cougar Chase needs volunteers on race day, Saturday, June 4th. Shifts are short and you can still see your kids race!  Go to Volunteer Spot for more information:  http://vols.pt/CvF87M


4th Grade Parents - we need you!! Every year 4th grade parents help out with the 5th grade graduation so those parents can just sit back and enjoy everything.  We need people to help serve cupcakes and do some decorating on June 7th at noon.  If you are interested or have questions, please contact Tricia Moe at triciamster@gmail.com


Would you like to help classes as they plant seeds/seedlings in the garden?  Classrooms will plant in the garden before/after their Field Day Activities on Wed. June 8 or during a planting session on Thurs. June 9.  We are seeking parent volunteers  to help facilitate 1 of 4 stations in the garden. Details will be provided for those who sign up. Please sign up at: http://vols.pt/RB5B2q


We are seeking families to have fun in the school garden, while helping care for the garden over the summer.  Families sign up for a week of watering and weeding the garden.  Generally, watering is only required 1-2 times per week and one small section is assigned for weeding.  Additional instructions will be provided to those who sign up, including produce items you can pick & enjoy! Please sign up at:  http://vols.pt/RB5B2q


WE NEED YOU to make the end of year celebration happen!  It takes almost 100 volunteers to run all the stations.  K-2 is in the morning, 3-5 in the afternoon.  4 different shifts available (or stay for the day!).  Don’t forget to RSVP for lunch.  Thanks for helping make this a fun day for the kids!  Sign up on Volunteer Spot:  http://vols.pt/GWf8kP


Looking for someone to coordinate Lego Robotics at Congdon Park! Over the last three years, many parents have volunteered to introduce Lego Robotics to 3-5 graders. We have received grants from the Congdon Foundation and the Keely and Mickey Pearson Foundation and have held other fundraisers as well. As a result, the school now owns 10 robots and has extra funds for needed parts! Now, we need someone to help run the program - duties would include organizing students into groups, making sure there are enough parent volunteers, helping support volunteers, and keeping robots in good shape. Contact Amy White  amycwhite72@gmail.com if you are interested or have questions.
