Do you want to help teachers but don't have a lot of time? 
Want to volunteer but need flexibility?

We need one volunteer per day to help the teachers make copies. Teachers leave their requests in the Learning Commons and we can come in ANY TIME during school hours to make copies for them. It usually takes about an hour (sometimes less). Cindy Bozza will reach out to you if you haven't done this before to go over training and logistics. You can help as many or as little days in a month as you can. Click HERE to SignUp.  Questions? Please email Cindy at
