Help is needed for supervision while students are changing clothes for PE. Volunteers are needed to supervise students who have already finished dressing and gone outside, so that the teacher can be free to supervise inside the locker room. The need for help is greatest between 12:30 p.m.-12:50 p.m. and 1:25 p.m.-1:45 p.m. To get involved, please contact Mr. Burnham at firstname.lastname@example.org or call the school office.
We need a few volunteers to help coordinate Teacher Treat Day. During Teacher Treat Day, which is held once a month, families provide food for teachers and staff to enjoy during their lunch break. Coordinating Teacher Treat Day is straightforward and we are fortunate to have a generous community that comes together month after month to show their gratitude to the hardworking Portola teachers/staff. If you would be willing to help, please let Tre know at email@example.com. You will receive lots of support and info to make this an easy, enjoyable way to add to a positive school culture.
