Our friends at Clemens Crossing PTA made a really nice video explaining the program.

Volunteer Opportunity Spotlight: 

1. Do you like planning events? The Wellness Committee could use help planning a virtual bingo night in January.

2. Do you like facilitating discussions? We are also looking for volunteers to help set up social Google Meets, like lunch bunches, a game, trivia, or discussion, to help students get to know their classmates outside of class time. We can help provide the ideas!

If you wish to volunteer for any of these opportunities, please email for more information.

Feedback: Please let us know if you have any questions, feedback, or suggestions either by email or via our suggestion box. Suggestions are anonymous, so if you would like a reply, please include your email address.
