Dear Hyde Park Community,
We are so excited to share our plans for the upcoming school year. We expect to be back on Dunbar Elementary’s campus with very few restrictions. The administration team is welcoming us back with open arms and many wonderful ideas of how we can make the biggest impact yet with the students and staff of Dunbar.
We want to get our volunteers connected and helping with classroom needs right away this year. There will also be many other ways to volunteer – such as helping with special events, gardening, or sharing a skill with the students as a club leader.
We also want you to see the building and grounds with all the improvements. In order to facilitate this, we are inviting you to attend a Coffee with Dunbar, 9 – 10 a.m. Monday, Aug. 2. This is before students start back to school. We hope to have as many of our volunteers attend as possible – and please bring an interested friend. This will be an informal opportunity to be introduced to the principal, Ms. Cynthia Crim, the teachers and staff, see the school with all the improvements, including our redecorated teachers’ lounge, updated media center, covered court, the garden and the animals. We hope you might make a connection with a teacher you would enjoy helping this year or finding an area of interest for you. In-depth training for volunteers will be provided at a later date.
Please mark your calendar for 9 a.m. Aug. 2. YOU are the PULSE of the PARTNERSHIP! It can’t survive without you! Please reply to let us know you will be there on Aug. 2 with an email to Kathy Avant, ministry liaison.
We also want to share the tentative dates of the “big events” for our Partnership Volunteers. Feel tree to add them to your calendar. Details about each of these events will be shared as more information becomes available.
