While money is crucial to the growth of our school, donating your time and talent is equally as valuable. Please consider volunteering for the below opportunities.
We are excited to be back at school and want to celebrate with fun and easy social events that bring together our students and families. We welcome any ideas and help with executing small activities to take place safely outside Jahn and help boost spirits. To volunteer, email FOJ Co-Chairs Mollie Rapp at [email protected] and Mollie Vivoda at [email protected].
The Jahn Spirit Wear Store is open! 20% of sales go back to our school. Visit the online store here.
Roscoe Village Farmers Market
Every Sunday from 9am-1pm, the Roscoe Village Farmers Market sets up on our play lot! If you are interested in working the Jahn table any Sunday between now and October 19th, you can sign up here. We would love to have parents and staff there to represent our school!
Want to collaborate to send out the weekly newsletter? We need your help! This includes collaborating with the other parent volunteer groups, Mr. Herring and Mrs. Margo and others to get their weekly updates as well as keeping the calendar of events up to date. We are also in need of volunteers to help with Spanish translation. If interested, contact FOJ Kate Cox at [email protected].
Room Parent Program
Room Parents help create an inclusive and welcoming environment by strengthening family to family partnerships within their classroom. They help facilitate communication and work with their teacher on classroom activities, events and projects. Please consider volunteering for your classroom when you hear more about the program from your teacher. FOJ will host a short Room Rep Orientation at the monthly meeting in October.
