We are so lucky to have such talented leaders to support our work.
We will have several new paraeducators on staff as well. Seung Bang is our new art paraeducator. Karyn King is our new 9-hour classroom paraeducator and Kerri Higgins is a new 1st grade paraeducator supporting special education. Please join me in giving all our new staff a warm, Roadrunner welcome!
We are able to have parent volunteers on campus and in classrooms this year and are waiting for additional guidance about volunteer regulations. In the meantime, you can read about volunteer requirements on the Volunteer Page on SRVUSD website. All volunteers must be cleared through the Be a Mentor screening program.
We have posted positions for lunch recess supervisors and are eagerly awaiting applicants. We are looking for a few parents to step in and help us out until we can hire permanent lunch recess supervisors. If you’re interested in volunteering, please click HERE.
