  • 9/9 thru 9/21 & 9/26 - Jungle Ropes - Volunteers Needed!!

    The ever-popular Jungle Ropes Course is back, and we’re offering it earlier this year than in years past: Friday, September 9 through Wednesday, September 21. This fun activity is one that the kids love, and it’s a great opportunity to volunteer and support your child and their classmates as they work on climbing across the cargo net, climbing the high wall, and see the importance of teamwork in action.  The schedule is below, and each class will need at least 3 volunteers for each session. Volunteering is easy—all you need to do is help assist the students with the harness, clip and unclick them, and encourage them along the way. Unfortunately, without volunteer support, we cannot provide the high wall and cargo net experience for your child’s class.  We hope you’ll sign up to help! Just click here to access the Sign-Up Genius or email Melissa Gibson at gibsonmh@yahoo.com. Thank you for your help to make this activity a success!   9/9: Dutchkowski, Cutler/Egan, Evans/Turner, Clark, Bast 9/12: LeDuc, Walter, Mason, Jiskra, Smith 9/13: Konopka, Pak, Kalkofen, Harmon, Reck-Merkel 9/14: Dutchkowski, Cutler/Egan, Evans/Turner, Clark, Bast 9/15: LeDuc, Walter, Mason, Jiskra, Smith 9/16: Konopka, Kalkofen, Harmon, Reck-Merkel 9/19: Dutchkowski, Cutler/Egan, Evans/Turner, Clark, Bast 9/20: LeDuc, Walter, Mason, Jiskra, Smith 9/21: Konopka, Pak, Kalkofen, Harmon, Reck-Merkel 9/26: Pak Specials times by grade: 5th grade: 11:30am - 12:10pm 4th grade: 12:10pm -12:50pm 3rd grade:  1:40pm -2:20pm 2nd grade: 2:20pm -3:00pm 1st grade: 3:00pm -3:40pm
