Volunteers Requirements

We love our volunteers! We appreciate all of the wonderful parents and grandparents who touch the lives of our students each day. Volunteers are the reason our Kindergarten program is so successful. 

Please go to the district web site for further information and to download the appropriate forms needed to complete the fingerpinting process. This can take some time so we strongly encourage families to start the process as soon as possible.

 

California law does not allow school districts to charge fees to students for curricular and extracurricular activities. However, as you are aware, due to state budget cut backs, schools can no longer afford to fund many of these activities. Therefore, we are requesting voluntary donations from parents to offset the costs of these programs. Parents are not required to make donations and all students may participate in extracurricular activities regardless of whether their parents make a donation. You are not required to purchase the items listed below. For additional information, please visit the CUSD link on Student Fees.

PTA Membership

 We are very grateful to the Wagon Wheel PTA.  If it were not for them, our music donation drive would have to be twice as much for each family, or we would have had to forfeit our music program

Also, remember the PTA dues are only $15.00 per family.  They provide many wonderful programs. Your participation is appreciated.  

 

Tote Bag ( Kindergarten Music Fundraiser)

Tote bags: To foster independence, we strongly encourage all of our Kindergarten students to use a tote bag or messenger bag rather than a backpack. Easy access without the difficulty of opening and closing zippers leads to student success and greater confidence.  If you wish to show your school spirit Wagon Wheel tote bags are available to purchase to support our Music program.     New colors are available this year: red/black, purple/black, turquoise/black, apple green/black and royal blue/black.

Parent Prep Night

On Tuesday, September, 8th, we will be having a Parent Prep Night from 6-8.  We would love to have as many willing hands as possible, especially if you are a parent who is unable to volunteer during the school day.  This would be an excellent opportunity to come and help our classrooms, meet other Kindergarten parents and have some fun.
