PCMS Lunchtime Walkabout Program

We are seeking volunteers for the Lunchtime Walkabout Program.  It is so important that our kids have the opportunity to get outside at lunchtime for some fresh air…especially as the weather gets nicer.  This can’t be possible without a few parents helping during lunchtime.  Your job is to provide more eyes, ears and mostly smiles for the kids.  The students love having you there and it’s a great way to watch your kids interact with their friends.  It’s not a large time commitment.  Sign up with a friend, grab a coffee and come hang out at the school together for a short 30 minutes.  Please consider signing up over the next few months.  Dads, the kids love to see you on Fridays!  Come shoot some hoops or throw a football.  You can sign up using the links below.

It is important that your volunteer application is completed and approved before you volunteer at the school.  Information on that process can be found here
