Dear Mound Parents,

Due to state budget shortfalls and furlough days, teachers are losing one of their three paid preparation days before school starts in August, leaving them with only two paid days to get their classrooms and materials ready. In reality, we know our dedicated teachers will be volunteering their time well before those prep days, so their rooms can be ready to welcome our children on the first day of school.

In support of their commitment, the PTO is organizing parent volunteers to help with photocopying, collating, cutting, stapling, gluing, laminating, etc. on Thursday, 8/18 and Friday, 8/19. We need about 30 volunteers total each day.

If you are interested in signing up for a 3-hour shift, please contact Karrie Carey at UMOWGLI@YAHOO.COM or (805) 906-1122. Indicate if you have a date and/or shift preference so that we can organize a schedule:

Thursday, 8/18 Friday, 8/19

8am-11am / 10am-1pm / 11am-2pm / 1pm-4pm / 2pm-5pm

Please choose a shift that will allow you to help on campus without your child(ren).

Note that classrooms will be off-limits during prep days, so the teachers can work without disruptions. Volunteers will provide support in the workroom and cafeteria.
