Four Winds Volunteers Needed
Are you a parent that loves to see your children learning actively and fully engaged? (And don't you love it when they come to you to report a new discovery they've made outdoors?) Are you a community member that believes that our planet's future depends on today's youth developing a connection with the natural world around them? Are you a grandparent that would love to spend a little time with our children once a month teaching them about nature and science?
NO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY! Love of our children, curiosity about nature, and enthusiasm are the only requirements! Only three-four hours a month volunteering time maximum needed!
Four Winds Nature Program at Weathersfield School is looking for parents, grandparents and community members who would be willing to volunteer with the program next academic school year (2019-2020). All volunteers attend a training the first Wednesday of each month for two hours to learn all the activities for that month's science and nature topic (complete with a good amount of laughter and camaraderie). Then volunteers go, in pairs, into one K-5 classroom each month to do the same group of activities with the students (you would set the regularly scheduled 60-90 minute time slot each month with your teacher).
Being a Four Winds volunteer is FUN. It's an IMPORTANT addition to our school's science program. And, it's ESSENTIAL -- Four Winds is an entirely volunteer-led program, fully and enthusiastically supported by Weathersfield's teachers and administrators, but reliant upon enough volunteers stepping up to the plate to make it happen.
If you would like to get a little taste of what it would be like before you commit, you have options! You can:
· Find out who your child's classroom volunteer is this year and ask them about it.
· Attend our last training for this year on Wednesday, May 1, from 8:30-10:30am at the Hartland Elementary School (we take turns having our trainings at Weathersfield School and Hartland School each month).
· Look for the Four Winds table at School Report Night on Tuesday, June 4 from 5-6pm and find out more or ask questions!
· Express interest in learning more and we will let you know when our volunteers will be meeting in May/June for a prep session for next year!
For more information or to ask questions about it, please feel free to contact Amy Hill (firstname.lastname@example.org or 802-299-7791).
