Service Opportunities – February 20

A group of students from the Junior School will be here on campus on Thursday, March 12, for a small day camp. They are looking for students from the Senior School who want to volunteer to hang out and have fun with them!

Students are between 5 and 10 years old and will be here between 10 am and 3 pm. Do you have a skill you want to share? Do you want to help with crafts? Maybe do some buddy reading? Do an impromptu jam session? Set up a board game cafe? The options are endless! You can come out for a small part of the day – whatever works for you!

If you are interested please email Ms. Shihadeh at [email protected]. She can chat  with you to find something that works.
