We Need Your Help!
Here are some volunteer positions that we are looking to fill, to make the school year a success!
Early Release Movies Coordinators
2 Open Positions
The PTO offers movies on Early Release Days (four times in the Fall and four times in the Spring). This both allows parents the convenience of picking up their children at the normal pickup time, and raises money for the PTO. We are looking for people who can be responsible for the movies, from purchasing snack and supplies beforehand, to working with the Volunteer Coordinator to line up parent volunteers to staff the movies. (It is important that any volunteers are able to be at school for all of the early release days).
We are offering an incentive for parents volunteering for this position: both of the Early Release Movie Coordinators will receive free movie enrollment for their children. If we do not find volunteers for the Early Release movies, we may not be able to continue to offer them.

Are you an organized person with a love of bringing garden and nature learning into classrooms? The Driscoll School Garden Program needs your help.
The Driscoll School Garden Program is a parent-led effort to promote outdoor garden-based experiential learning. The program’s mission is to create a living outdoor classroom that empowers students to love learning, cultivate relationships, embrace nature and engage with the world as innovators and catalysts. Whether through active participation or passive enjoyment, everyone in our community can find educational inspiration and enrichment in the garden.
The Driscoll School Garden Program is seeking a new Garden Coordinator (or multiple people willing to share the role). This is a year-round volunteer position that leads the garden committee co-chairs and volunteers in:
construction and ongoing maintenance of the school garden
in-school and after-school teaching
participation in school events and district-wide collaboration
It is worth noting that horticultural skill is much less important than organizational skill.
Our current coordinator will step down from two years of service at the end of 2019. Ideally, the new coordinator(s) would overlap with him this fall semester for a smooth transition and plenty of ramp-up time.
