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.

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.

Kindergarten Music

Thank you to all of the families who have contributed to the fundraising project to reinstate an official Kindergarten Music program. If your family is able to contribute $50.00 per kindergarten student, and has not done so as of yet, we welcome your contribution.  Checks can be made payable to Wagon Wheel PTA.  A tax deductible receipt will be issued at a later date. Our students will participate in a 30 minute music lesson taught by a highly qualified credentialed music teacher each week. Kindergarteners will use their voices, hands, feet and classroom instruments to explore rhythm and song. We dance and sing and play while learning about fast and slow, high and low, and loud and soft, as well as how music touches our lives and hearts through the seasons! All instructors follow the California State Framework for Kindergarten Music.
