Volunteer Opportunities:

The library can always use volunteers. Please see here for more information and here for a map of the library.

Please sign up for volunteering for Art Adventures with Becky Hartley at bekstam@gmail.com.  We will be receiving the art set from the Minneapolis Institute of Arts in March 2018 and will have the set through the end of March.  Just 1 meeting a week in your favorite classroom is a fun way to be involved bringing art to the classroom!  This year our themed set is called AMERICAN STORIES and you can check out the pieces HERE.  No experience necessary, we will provide you a brief training and all the information and materials needed.  Please email with any questions.  Volunteer sign up will be posted soon, and Informational meeting will be held in February, date and time TBD.

Hello! It's time to volunteer for Junior Great Books. Please consider volunteering in your child's classroom. We will be starting up the second week of January for a total of six sessions. If you are not familiar with Junior Great Books- not to worry! Junior Great Books is a program that engages kids in focused discussion about a chosen story.  All stories and materials are provided. Your job as leader is to help facilitate the discussion. Feel free to incorporate your own ideas into the discussion and get creative. We will be having a training session before it begins: Thursday, December 14th from 11-12 in the PTA room at Congdon. If you can't make that session, please contact Betsy Schwartz at
bschwar1ster@gmail.com to set something up outside of that time or talk on the phone.

PHIT (Parents Helping Incredible Teachers) is a twice a month opportunity to help teachers with whatever projects need work. Great way to meet other parents. Younger siblings welcome. Thursdays from 8:00am to 11:00am. Stop in for 15 minutes to work on one project or stay for the morning. Contact Allison Coda at acoda2@gmail.com for more information or be added to the contact list.
