The Obama Ministry Team Invites YOU to Volunteer
Nancy Heege, Obama School Ministry Team
Obama volunteers would like to improve their skills in tutoring students in reading and math. We are looking for someone to lead a training session for our volunteers on a Saturday morning, early in the fall, either in person or on Zoom. If you have skills in teaching reading and math to children, or know of someone to recommend, please contact Marty Rossmann at email@example.com.
Please consider being a classroom volunteer. The children and staff of Barack and Michelle Obama Elementary School need our help and support. There are two important goals that we as classroom volunteers have when working with our Obama scholars. The time we spend with our scholars is taken from their classroom learning time so our first goal is to provide learning experiences for the scholars that further their reading and math skills during the time we spend with them outside of their classrooms. The second important goal as classroom volunteers is to build a positive supportive relationship with the scholars as we meet with them each week. There are also other ways to be involved, with varying time commitments.
The teachers and children are enthusiastic about our volunteers, and we’d like you to consider joining us. We hope to begin volunteer work again in September, contingent on decisions being made about school schedule, in-person vs. virtual instruction.
To get started as a volunteer, email Karen Abraham at firstname.lastname@example.org to request the application forms. Karen will send three things: a volunteer form to state your preferences; a Saint Paul Schools volunteer background investigation form, giving your permission for the school to do a background check; and instructions on how to return the forms. Forms that are returned over the summer may be delayed depending on the school's ability to process them. Note: each volunteer will be asked to pay the $12 fee for the background check this year.
If you shop at Kowalski’s on Grand Avenue, please put your grocery receipts in the Obama School donation box in the checkout area. The school will get a quarterly check based on the number of receipts in the box.
