PTG Highlights: Library Help Needed, Music Room Notes, B2SN, PAL, SEPAC, Local Community Events, Happening at Alcott

Library Volunteers Needed: The Alcott School Library Media Center relies on a network of parent volunteers. Under the guidance of Library Volunteer Coordinators, volunteers are recruited and trained at the start of each school year, and a volunteer schedule is created to cover all classes for that school year. Volunteer tasks include: circulation of material, shelving and shelf reading, assisting students with book selection, and housekeeping. Volunteers are asked to commit to a biweekly or weekly schedule. Openings remain in the following classes: Luby, Peduzzi, Martin, Wilson, Gleason, McMahon, Woodman, LoRusso, Hardiman, McSweeney, Sexauer, Besserer, Forseter, Delaney.

The Parent at Lunch Program: Each month parents have the opportunity to join their child (or children) at lunch! The first Parent at Lunch for this school year is Friday September 27th. The sign up for the lunch is via the Google documents link here. The program is limited to 8 spots per grade and the office must be able to verify your CORI status for you to attend. The name you sign up with on the Google Doc should match the name on your license EXACTLY. In order to attend PAL, you must have an approved CORI on file with Alcott. CORI’s are valid for 3 years and each organization/school is required to have their own CORI. When you complete the CORI form, the school must also view a photo ID such as a driver’s license. Back to School night is a good opportunity to complete the form. Once a grade is full, we use a wait list for the next month. Names on the wait list have priority for the next month’s lunch. For more information, please click here.

Get to know the SEPAC: It is a volunteer parent advisory council that advises the school committees and administration on matters pertaining to the education and safety of children with disabilities. In addition, through social events, and informative presentations we support, connect, and educate parents, caregivers and the community about special education. We are here to support you throughout you and your child’s educational journey in our schools. For more information, please see this letter.
