Passport Club

PTC PASSPORT CLUB is looking for a volunteer to help for 40 minutes just ONCE A MONTH.

This is a great opportunity to help out – minimal time commitment but BIG impact!

Opportunity #1: We are in need of someone to arrive at 7:50am on Passport check days to set out maps and stamps and quiz the 6 or 7 first graders who arrive before school begins. We have a team of 5th grade students who also help. It is quick, fun, and rewarding. You are out the door by 8:30am! (training provided)

Opportunity #2:  For those of you who like to plan ahead! We are in need of someone to help copy and collate maps and intro letters to students for the 2018/19 school year.  This person will assist Veronika Zeisset in early September. The time commitment is 2-3 hours.

Please contact Lori Miller or Amanda Englund if you would be interested in either of these opportunities or if we can provide you with more information. 

With the Olympics just around the corner, have fun with your kids locating all of the countries you see- especially during the parade of nations! Turn it into your own home/family competition and see if you can find the different countries before your children!
