Exciting changes to Half Day Indoor Recess!
We are introducing a new exciting volunteering opportunity for our parents! To make indoor recess at Half Day School an enjoyable experience for our 3rd and 4th graders, they will be divided into groups to participate in organized events either in the gym (active games) or in the classrooms (board games, activities), or to go for a quiet reading to the library, all in a supervised environment. In order to succeed with this great plan, we need parent volunteers to help supervise the children during those activities. If you have any questions or would like to get involved with this one and only opportunity, contact Jackie Curtis at firstname.lastname@example.org. To sign up, follow the link to Sign Up Genius.
