Book Fair Help: We are in need of a volunteer to serve as book fair co-chair, alongside Hilary Prosser, who is able to devote approximately 3 to 4 hours of time leading up to the book fair and a significant amount of time during the week of the fair. Tasks include implementing and tracking All For Books campaign, developing and distributing book fair materials, set up, tear down and working the fair with Hilary. Waters currently has two fairs scheduled during the year: the fall fair is tentatively scheduled for November 28 to December 1 and the spring fair is tentatively scheduled for the end of May. Ideally, Hilary is looking for a co-chair to help run both. The book fair always comes and goes so quickly! The kids love it and it is so fun to see the excitement first hand. Also, it is a great opportunity to interact with Waters staff and families. If interested, please email WatersToday volunteer coordinators.
Boys Soccer Coach: We are need of a coach or coaches for 5th/6th and 7th/8th boys soccer. The season usually runs from the end of September to late October/early November and games take place once to twice a week, Monday through Thursday after school. Home games are played on Waters' field, and the team carpools to all away games. For more information, email Mr. Orlov or the volunteer coordinators.
Circle of Help: This program provides a service for Waters Elementary families in need of support. Circle of Help aims to alleviate the stress of financial hardship on students and their family members by offering assistance through community aid. We are in need of individuals to assist in organizing, compiling and delivering supplies. This is a program that provides school supplies, coats, boots, food and any other item necessary to ensure that Waters students can focus on their education. It is a small time commitment, usually 1 to 2 hours per month, but has a lasting impact for our students and their families. If interested, email the volunteer coordinators.
