artleadVOLUNTEER: Inclusive Schools Week Lead & Art Project Lead!
ISW 2015

We are still looking for Volunteers!

 

Inclusive Schools Week (ISW), Dec5-9, is a fantastic week of school-wide activities to celebrate inclusivity. This year's national ISW theme is "Champions of Inclusion: Powerful things happen in Inclusive Schools".  

 

We need an ISW Lead*, who coordinates volunteers and works with the ISW Art Project sub-lead on all in-class and all-school ISW art projects. This ISW superstar is responsible for ISW communication and coordinates volunteers to create in-class activities and present an all-school assembly (if time permits). In addition, the Lead helps coordinate the parent volunteers for our PE Ability Awareness stations as well as helps with the Family Potluck.


*If you have someone you'd like to share the work with, Co-lead pairs are welcome! 

 

We are also looking for an ISW Art Project lead, who creates the ISW themed school-wide art project.


For those interested, the ISW Lead and Art Lead are short term positions - work begins in late October/Early November and ends the first week of December. And check out our photos if you're unfamiliar with ISW but would like to see what the week is all about!


Interested? Contact: volunteer@miralomasf.com

recessVOLUNTEER: Volunteer at Recess!
Recess is an integral part of our children's socio-emotional development. A huge part of making sure recess at Miraloma can be a positive space for all of our students is by having enough caring and responsible adults on the yard to help provide supervision. Please contact me to volunteer!
[See recess schedule on our website]
