Carson Reading Room (CRR)

If you are new to our school, this is an amazing volunteer opportunity.  You get to work directly with children in a warm, cozy environment as they read books for enjoyment!  The students absolutely love going and our volunteers enjoy it as well! If you have volunteered previously, we have made some changes to the scheduling process that we hope will better value your time at our school, and enable you to attend the room with your child.  The new structure will also ensure that all children in the school are able to attend the room at least three times a year. Please visit our website (and scroll down) to view the PowerPoint for more information.


Volunteer Information and CRR: Be on the lookout for an email with the signup link from your child’s grade level team leader a few weeks before the team’s scheduled week to find out the specific day your child’s teacher will be attending.


Walking Wednesdays

The activity requires 2 or 3 parent volunteers per recess period and provides a great opportunity for parents to interact with their children and their friends. WW is a great way for parents, grandparents and other caregivers to get involved. (Walking Wednesdays will begin in October and ends after Thanksgiving, then weather permitting, we will start walking again in mid-March until the end of the School-Year.)
