fieldVOLUNTEERS NEEDED: FIELD DAY
WEDNESDAY, JUNE 14
 

Many parent/guardian volunteers are needed for this special school activity. We need your help!

Event Hosts  will receive all materials needed to set up and manage one field event station with student volunteers. Hosts will offer students encouragement and praise for their participation, and assist with station clean up. Host check-in will be at 8:30 a.m. in front of the school. Younger siblings are welcome to accompany hosts, just let us know so that we can help you select an appropriate station. All hosts are required to have a current background check on file with LWSD, and so when responding to volunteer, please note if you need a form. Also, let us know if you would like to be paired at your event station with an English-speaking volunteer. 

Water Balloon Fillers   will receive 30 small balloons and nozzle via Kid Mail the week prior to field day, and will need to return the filled balloons to school with your child in the morning on Wednesday, June 14 . Drop containers will be located in front of the school.


Contact us with questions. Thank you!

YEARBOOK VOLUNTEERS NEEDED!

It takes a village . . . . . to create a fabulous yearbook!

Thank you to all those who contributed photos to create this year's book. Your kids are going to love it!

We are recruiting for next year - we have broken the yearbook job down into several parts and want to try something new with our photo collection efforts. Except photography, all the jobs can be done at home, at any time of day. And the LifeTouch software is easy to use.

Yearbook layout lead - 1 person - are you a big picture person? All of the pages you see in our yearbook are filled with templates we've created over the past six years. You can use these or create new to set the stage for the general book layout.

Photography lead for events - 1 person - coordinating photographs for all the special Rockwell events next year.

Photography leads for each grade - 6 people - coordinating photographs for your student's full grade and all the special Rockwell events will help us get an equal representation of all 650-plus students at Rockwell.

Yearbook creation - do you love to scrapbook? Well our yearbook is just an 88-page scrapbook.  If you like to create the special pages and select the photos use, then this is the job for you.
