We have received a lot of feedback from people interested in volunteering at the school and at SCN functions, so we’ll start by providing that opportunity. The link below will take you to a VolunteerSpot sign up for opportunities.
Volunteer signup link: http://vols.pt/KA9k6B
Of note, there are two types of volunteer opportunities. Those with a single position to fill and those with unlimited positions. Single opportunities are for people that will head up/be responsible for specific efforts while the unlimited spots are just if you have an interest in helping out in this area. Please feel free to sign up for as many areas of interest as you like!
New this year, the community network has a facebook page where we will be posting meeting agends, minutes, event related announcements and more. Facebook page link: http://www.facebook.com/SageSCN
Our first meeting will be September 12th. In addition to covering our usual business (a portion of the meeting that we expect to run from 6:00 to 6:30), we will be giving a tutorial on the use of Skyward. We highly recommend attending at least this portion of the meeting and becoming familiar with one of the most important tools available for taking an active role in your childs education. Note: it is our intention to have a “Parent ROI” activity like this at each meeting, so watch for meeting announcements which will include that months topic. For those not familiar with Skyward, it allows parents to check the most recent grades and find out about past, current and upcoming assignments.
Regular SCN meetings will be on the fourth Tuesday of each month, barring exceptional circumstances (i.e. Christmas Eve).
Teacher Appreciation events will again be the second Wednesday of the month, starting October 9th, more on that as we get closer.
Dates for upcoming SCN activities:
Sep. 12th: SCN meeting and Skyward tutorial
Sep. 24th: SCN meeting focused on volunteer training/prep work
Oct. 9th: First Teacher Appreciation lunch
Late October (date TBA): Scarecrow Stroll at the Botanical Gardens
