Many thanks to the DISCOVERoom volunteers who make the room a success!
Hello DISCOVERoom Volunteers!
Thank you SO much for your interest in volunteering in Colina's DISCOVERoom (DR). We are so fortunate to have a special place like the DISCOVERoom at Colina and would like to thank Mrs. Brunner and staff for bringing it to us. The DR cannot exist without our awesome Colina volunteers!
Our DR will be open Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays during lunch (class visitation schedule).
6-9 students from different classes and grades (24-30 total) will come into the DR during their lunch recess for a 20 minute session between 10:20am - 12:20pm. We need volunteers on a regular basis (daily, weekly, monthly or whenever you can), to keep it running. Shifts are 2 hours including set-up and clean-up: Tuesdays 10:20-12:20 (5, 4, 1), Wednesdays 10:20-12:20 (3, K, 2) and Thursdays 10:40-12:20 (3, 5, 2).
Below are important documents for DISCOVERoom volunteers. If you are interested in volunteering with the DISCOVERoom in some capacity, you can email: DISCOVERoomKyrene@gmail.com or sign up on the SignUpGenius webpage and just put "new volunteer" in the comments box.
Orientation slides are below with general information. This will answer most questions! It includes procedures (slides 6-9 most important). Please email the DISCOVERoom team with any additional questions. You can also attend our 1st Semester Volunteer Orientation: www.SignUpGenius.com/go/10C0D4FABA928A0F58-20183 on Thur 9/20 at 10:10am -10:40am.
Non Parent Volunteer Process & Form
(for granparents, relatives, & community members who want to volunteer)
Please come in and see how it works! Volunteers will be with a veteran on their first shift so that they will have a practical orientation. *Don't forget, your child is always welcome in the DR during your shift, even if it is not their class's day. Volunteers arrive at 10:10am to set-up, so even if you want to stop in to see the set-up or take-down or just part of the session you are welcome!
No science background necessary. We will provide training. If you are not a parent of a Colina student, but would like to volunteer, we can help you through the process to get a fingerprint clearance card.
Lunch recess volunteer duties might include:
Checking in /attendance
Walking students to/from classroom, MPR or restrooms
Helping students with stations (tearing tape at the Invention Bin, changing batteries, fixing marble run, etc..)
Running a hands-on interactive station
We also need at home/after hours volunteers to: Cut, construct, research, email, make copies, laminate, etc...
Looking forward to seeing you all this year!
The Colina DISCOVERoom Team
