BOKS Volunteers and Registration

Keep an eye out for a flyer in your child's backpack to register for the awesome before-school activity program, BOKS! Kids love this program but spaces are limited. The best way to secure a spot for your child is to become a volunteer! It's not a huge commitment-- classes will run from 7:30-8:10 am two days a week for six weeks (Gr. K-2 M/W and Gr. 3-5 T/Th)

To volunteer, email Coleen Power or PRSPTOemail@gmail.com
