What to expect as a volunteer in the art room:
You will be asked to assist in distributing materials,
preparing materials and putting up bulletin boards. Please avoid bringing in
other children. This is a distraction for the students and to you as a
volunteer. On that same note, sometimes I will have two volunteers for one
class and often times this lends itself to having conversations when I really
need your help.
As a volunteer, you will be asked to have respect for each
child and keep your opinions and observations confidential. Please
know that you are valued as a volunteer. Often times I will do a certain
project because I know that I will have extra hands to
help me. Please call the school if you cannot make it in to help out.
