These programs are active throughout the year.
Join us on Wednesdays for lunch a the park and earn volunteer hours.
Reader Board Updating
We need parents to update the Reader Board outside regularly with announcements.
Laminating at UNR
The Academy does not have their own laminator, but UNR has graciously offered us the use of theirs. She will pick up and deliver laminated materials on Wednesday afternoons.
At the Academy, our staff celebrate UnBirthdays rather than celebrating a traditional birthday at school. It is a fun literary connection to Alice in Wonderland, and gives our staff members another special day to be celebrated during the school year. UnBirthdays are organized by the Sun Shine Committee (a group of staff that takes on organizing specials events for other members). Each teacher, who chooses to participate, is given an UnBirthday Buddy, and is in charge of bring a special treat and card on their Buddy’s UnBrithday.
Parents and scholars do not support UnBirthdays in any way other than a happy UnBirthday wish to the celebrating staff member. Watch for UnBirthday announcements on Facebook.
Dollar Dress Days
On the first Friday of each month, your scholar can donate a dollar and wear whatever they want to school (guidelines for general appropriateness still apply). Donations go towards supplying uniforms for scholars in need.
What better way to commemorate another year in your scholar's life than donating a book to the Liz Warner Love of Learning Library. Your book will be labeled with your scholar's name and birthday for generations to enjoy.
Come by for lunch or recess and help the teachers supervise. This is a simple way to earn volunteer hours.
If you shop at SaveMart, come by the office and pick up a SaveMart S.H.A.R.E.S. card. When you shop, just hand it to the checker before you pay and SaveMart will donate a percentage back to the school.
