CPS has a new system in order to volunteer in schools. All parent volunteers must complete the new online CPS Volunteer Form in order to volunteer in the classroom or work with students. For the volunteering options available in the Sunrise Room this year, you will only need to be a Level II volunteer. (This is a shorter process and is for occassional classroom volunteering to help with projects or celebrations and for chaperoning field trips.) If you think you may be interested in volunteering at all this year for parties, art projects, or field trips, please complete the online form ASAP. This will ensure that we have everything ready when it comes time to volunteeer.
Complete the form at http://www.cps.edu/FACE/Pages/VolunteerPrograms.aspx Once you have submitted an application, please email Ms. Gayman.
In addition to volunteering in the classroom (for which you will need to complete the above form), I would love to have some parents volunteer to help out from home. There is so much prep work and paperwork (folding, stapling, cutting, sorting, bagging) for some of our learning activities. If you are willing to help with this kind of work, I can send home directions and materials to complete some of this work. It will be important though that if you volunteer to do this, you are able to meet the timeline established. Otherwise we won't have what we need for class.
THANK YOU FOR ALL OF YOUR ONGOING SUPPORT!
