When:  Tuesday, September 16, 2014, from 5PM – 8PM

Where: Rita's Italian Ice Shrewsbury, 466 Shrewsbury Commons Ave, Shrewsbury, PA 17361

2014-2015 Volunteer Training

Have you completed your volunteer training yet?  Don't forget, BCPS requires that anyone volunteering in our schools complete the training each school year.  This year, the training is offered online!    

To become a BCPS volunteer:

  1. Complete the volunteer application.
  2. Attend a scheduled BCPS volunteer training at any school or complete the online volunteer orientation.  You will be provided with a certificate once you successfully complete the training.  
  3. Submit the application and the valid training certificate to the school in which you intend to volunteer.  Volunteers may provide hard copies or the documents may be emailed to the school volunteer coordinator.  Both documents must be submitted at the same time to be accepted and reviewed by the school staff.

 

7 for 7th Pledge

7 for 7th Pledge

There are 4,320 hours over the course of 180 days of school.  We’re asking you to pledge to give 7 hours of your time this year to 7th District…here’s how!

 

·         Attend and volunteer for school events

·         Chaperone field trips

·         Volunteer to help your child’s teacher by prepping items at school or at home

·         Chair a PTA committee (Don’t worry, we’ll help you!)  smiley

·         Volunteer in the cafeteria or library

·         Attend an after school or evening PTA meeting

·         Clip Box Tops, send in Graul’s receipts and Campbell’s labels, etc.

How many times does 7 go into 4,320?  It's a fraction of all of the hours in the school year.  You'll see our 7DE Yellow Banner at school.  Please, sign your name to our pledge banner and
be a part of building the 7DE Community!
