Q:What are the descriptions for the volunteer slots?
- Project Volunteer - Go onsite or stay at school to help students with projects.
- Lunch in the lanes - Help with setup/cleanup.
- Delivery Volunteers - Deliver completed works to organizations.
Note: You can sign-up for more than one slot.
Q:Can I volunteer with my student?
A:We are randomly placing volunteers with classes, so there is a chance that you will not be volunteering with your child. We thank you for your flexibility and support with this event.
Q:Will lunch be served at Lunch in the Lanes?
A:The student should either bring a bag lunch or purchase lunch from the cafeteria as Lunch in the Lanes is a BYOL (bring your own lunch) event.
Q: How does my child get to participate?
A: All students will be encouraged to participate. Both 7th and 8th grade parents must sign the school permission form and have their student return it to their Dragon Time teacher. Some service project organizations may require a secondary permission waiver as well; these will be provided as needed. Both 7th and 8th graders will be going off site this year. Sixth graders will work on community service projects at school.
Q: Can my student choose where he or she will serve?
A: Unfortunately, no. Service projects will be assigned to each Dragon Time and participating students must work on projects with their Dragon Time class.
Q: Is there a cost to students?
A: There is no cost to students. We are asking students to participate in the school food drive and collection of grocery bags, newspapers, and magazines. If able, a donation of $5.00 will go toward the cost of the t-shirt worn on D3 Day.
Q: Food Drive and other collections?
A: We are doing a collection of food for several local charities. Most of the food will go to The Place of Forsyth http://theplaceofforsyth.org/ and some will go to Bald Ridge Lodge.
Here is the run down of items we need:
February: Mac and cheese
March: peanut butter and jelly
April: cereal (any kind, boxed or bagged)
Dragon Time classes are in competition each month for a candy party. We will accept any and all donations of anything, regardless of the month, up until May 20th.
We also need newspapers, (for animal shelters), magazines (for the Troops), and grocery bags for making plarn (plastic yarn) for mats for the homeless.
