Escrip is our way of getting “free-money” to the school. Parents register their credit/debt cards and a percentage of their money spent at participating grocery stores goes directly to the school. We need help with publicizing this opportunity, as well as small amount of data entry. Contact Anna Shade for more information.
Art in Action
Art in Action is a non-profit organization dedicated to bringing art education back into the classroom. This is a parent-volunteer program and no art experience or teaching experience is required – all training, curriculum and supplies are provided by Art in Action and the PTO. Volunteers present art masterpieces to the children and lead a discussion about art history and art techniques. Sign up to be a docent or a helper. The docent leads the discussion and presents the art project. The helper assists with prepping for the art lesson, helping the children with the project and clean up. Each classroom needs at least one docent (parent teacher) and 3-6 helpers. Activity happens during school hours based upon teacher schedule. Contact Jennifer Pagano or Gina Magliocco for more information.
