Come one, come all to the greatest school on earth! Anyone who was unable to help with the planning of Enrichment Day but still wants to be involved on the day of can sign up for various volunteer opportunities using the SignUpGenius link below. There are many ways to help out, and we can work with your schedules. Now that the planning is done, we are counting on parent volunteers to help Enrichment Day run as smoothly as possible!
Also, for students in Grades K-6 ONLY, please sign the attached waiver and return it to school AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. If your child does not have a signed waiver, he or she will not be able to participate in the fun activities we have planned with our visiting circus school on Enrichment Day. All activities are safe, age appropriate and will be closely monitored by professionals, however, this waiver is a standard procedure required by the circus school. A copy of this waiver should also have been sent home in your children’s folders last week. You can list all of your children (K-6) on one form if you would like. Thank you in advance for your cooperation and prompt return of the waiver!
