Eagle Eyes Volunteer Orientation
Monday, September 28th
6:00 – 7:30 pm

We are launching a new volunteer opportunity dedicated for men.  Eagle Eyes is a program where men are present in the school during school hours, helping the students and staff and keeping watch for good and bad behaviors in and around the school. Volunteering opportunities will begin in October. At this meeting we will be presenting more information about the program, including detailed information about what the volunteers will be doing and the expectations of the job. This orientation will include an activity for both the prospective volunteers and their students, so bring the kids! To RSVP for the orientation, please sign-up here:
