Expectations/Guidelines for Participation

While working in your child’s classroom, there are a variety of ways for you to help. They range from leading group games, to helping with art projects, building a block tower or assisting in the computer area. Dress very casually, and plan on staying for the time you have committed.

 

We do not allow siblings to be brought with a parent on the participation day.  It can be unsafe for them, and it takes away from the opportunity to work closely with the enrolled children. Every effort will be made to work with you in establishing options for your participation.
