Good morning, Archway Lincoln families! We hope you’re having a wonderful summer break. It’s hard to believe there are only TWENTY days until school starts!
One of the core virtues of Great Hearts is Citizenship and Humility. You can demonstrate this by volunteering your time and expertise at Archway Lincoln. Much of the work involved with getting our school and the PSO off the ground has been done by the amazing volunteers we had in our inaugural year. We’ve build the ship; now our job is to keep it afloat and on course.
Remember, too, that parents aren’t the only ones who can volunteer! Perhaps Grandma or Grandpa would like to help out in the lunchroom or office and see their grandchildren at school. As long as they have a fingerprint clearance card on file with the school, they can volunteer, too!
Some of the volunteer opportunities below are urgent (like next week!). We’re also sending out the volunteer sign-ups for the Front Office and Lunchroom for when school starts. Working in the front office or lunchroom is a GREAT way to be involved in the school, meet the wonderful scholars and teachers/staff, and see your child every day!
Please consider giving of your time after the school year starts.
We have a dire need for assistance next week, July 18-20th, to help assemble the new shelves PSO has purchased for the library, as well as a variety of other office-related tasks. For those of you who work full-time, this is a PERFECT CHANCE for you to give back to the school, as some of the time slots for assembling the shelves is in the evening!
We will also need help on Monday, August 1st, distributing math consumables and planners to classrooms, plus any other tasks required by teachers or the administration to be ready for the first day of school.
Please take a look at the following sign-ups and see if you can help. Any amount of time you can give is appreciated!
- Library Bookshelf Assembly July 18th (including evenings!)
- Front office volunteering July 18-20
- Classroom delivery of consumables August 1st
Note: A fingerprint clearance card is NOT necessary for any of these volunteer opportunities.
August School Volunteers
The August volunteer schedules for the lunchroom and office are now posted. We can always use your help to keep our school and lunch program running smoothly. No experience necessary! Really! It’s a great way to stay in touch with what’s going on in the school (and who doesn’t like seeing their child or grandchild during the day?).
There are two 3 1/2-hour office shifts: 8:00 a.m. to 11:45 a.m. and 11:45 a.m. to 3:20 p.m.
Lunch shifts are only two hours, from 10:45 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays. Note that Archway Lincoln will not start serving lunches or open the Snack Bar until Monday, August 15th.
Please take a look at the sign-ups and volunteer your time if you can.
As always, our school would not run smoothly without the help of our parents.
Remember that only parents with a fingerprint clearance card on file with the school can volunteer in the office, lunchroom, or classroom.
For more information about the next Fingerprinting opportunity or to schedule a time to do it at the Great Hearts main office, please email Great Hearts HR.
