    ❑ Sign in/Make a Name Tag (Mandatory for all volunteers)
    Every time you come in to volunteer (whether you volunteering at the school or on a field trip at the front office and make a name tag. Besides helping the school know how many volunteer hours we rely on each year, this is a security and safety measure. We need to know to come looking for you if the building is evacuated.  The volunteer sign-in binder is on the counter to the left as you enter the front office. 

     Complete a Field Trip Chaperone Form and/or Volunteer Driver form (optional)
    You need to complete this if you are chaperoning a walking/bus field trip or if you have signed up to be a driver on a field trip.
