Teacher Luncheon (3)

January Teacher Luncheon

Help show our wonderful faculty and staff how much we appreciate all the time and hard work that they put into giving our children the very best educational experience possible. For the last Thursday of each month, I am organizing volunteers to provide lunch for them in the Teacher’s Lounge.

Use the Sign Up Genius below to volunteer. We need about 4 volunteers to bring mains, sides, salads, desserts, etc. Our next Teacher Luncheon is Thursday, January 31. Feel free to sign up for any month that works for you. It’s a great way to show our appreciation and earn your volunteer hours. (Every $20 spent on food = 1 volunteer hour.)

Contact Katy Coleman with any questions. Thank you!

Help Spruce the School – Volunteers Needed

Sunday, January 27 is our St. Alphonsus Parish School Open House and the beginning of National Catholic Schools Week and we need to put a little polish on our beautiful light here in Ballard.

We will meet at 10am in the school cafeteria and work until our tasks are completed, we are thinking about 1pm. You DO NOT need to stay for the whole time, any time you can spare will be appreciated.

We will have light snacks and drinks an of course, this counts toward you volunteer hours.

Winter Open House

Winter Open House Volunteers Needed

Our biggest Open House event is coming up on Sunday, January 27th from 11:30-1:30pm!

I need at least 15 parent volunteers to help with tours, sign-in, greeting, etc.

I have also listed the items we need to cater the event. If you can send supplies, I would greatly appreciate it. Every $20 you spend counts for 1 volunteer hour.

Please sign up for what works with your schedule. Thank you in advance for your help!

 

Stamps Needed: Easy Volunteer Opportunity

Jog-a-thon sponsor letters are ready to go out, but we need stamps!  Please drop off your stamp donation in the school office and write “Jog-a-thon” on the front of the envelope.

For every $20 you spend (that’s two books of stamps) you will receive one volunteer hour.

Did you know… you can purchase stamps online from the US Postal Service and have them mailed directly to the school (5816 15th Ave NW, Seattle, WA 98107). Just add “Attn: Jog-a-thon” in the address line.  Learn more:https://www.usps.com/

Holiday Hoopla 2018

Volunteer for Holiday Hoopla

Holiday Hoopla

Friday, December 14

On a piggy bank budget ($0.25 per item) our children can shop for gifts for parents, grandparents, siblings and loved ones of all ages. But we need your help!

Donate
Suggested items include accessories, like scarves, purses, belts and jewelry. Check around your home or work for reusable toys, books, games, DVDs, CDs, holiday decor, kitchen items, gardening supplies, craft supplies. Gifts for Dads/Grandpa are often hard to find, so consider things that might work for them.

We can NOT accept donations of clothing or food.
We also are in need of gift wrap, gift bags, ribbon, and tags.

The day of Holiday Hoopla, please have your child bring a bag to put their gifts that they will purchase for family and loved ones. Our volunteer’s will help them wrap the gifts. Each item is a $0.25. Please have your child bring a list of family members’ names and enough money for each gift.

Volunteer
It takes a lot people to sort the items, help our kids shop, and then wrap the gifts. Please use the Sign Up Genius to volunteer!
