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.
School Spirit Committee
We want to bring some life to the school while we're not filling it during remote learning. We welcome any ideas and help with executing small activities to take place safely outside Jahn and help boost spirits. To volunteer, email Mollie Rapp at firstname.lastname@example.org and Mollie Vivoda at email@example.com.
Check out our Jahn face masks here. More spirit wear coming soon!
We will be compiling recipes from the Jahn community and putting together a cookbook! We need help collecting and organizing recipes, collaborating with teachers to get student artwork for the cover design and inside as well as consider businesses to support the creation and sale of the cookbook. To volunteer, email Mollie Rapp at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Weekly Newsletter Committee
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 Kate Cox at email@example.com.
New Families Ambassador Program
Enrolling children at a new school can be an overwhelming and challenging situation. We would love to ease every family's transition to Jahn by matching them with existing members of our community. Ambassadors are volunteer parents who serve as a contact person for answering questions and making new families feel welcome. To be paired with a New Family Ambassador or volunteer as one, contact Program Coordinator, Mollie Vivoda, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
