  • LUNCH BUDDY PROGRAM (Rooms 205, 206 and 307): Once a week (45min/0.75 hour every week) for the whole trimester (consistency is necessary). Bring a lunch and join the students in Mrs. Bertrand, Ms. Reynolds, and Ms. Walker's classes. Their students love to talk to their lunch buddies, attend campus clubs, draw, read, go outside and have fun. If you are interested in this program, please contact Ms. Reynolds (Room 206).

  • LOST AND FOUND (Lost and Found; outside office): Every Thursday, two students may sign up to help sort and organize the Lost and Found with a parent volunteer.  Students should show up to the Lost and Found at lunch, after the 10-minute bell, and check in with the office if the parent volunteer isn't there.  Students will get 30 minutes of service time for each lunch they help. For more information, contact Mr. Mangold.
