Chinook Parents! Are you looking for a way to volunteer at Chinook next year? Consider this…

Starting in the fall with the opening of the new school building, Chinook will initiate a new volunteer program. The name of the program is still to be determined, but the idea is to bring teams of parents into the school during lunchtime to provide additional adult presence, supervision and support. These adults would encourage student success by helping to maintain a safe, supportive and positive environment at school.

Parent involvement in their children’s education has consistently been shown to contribute to academic achievement. What a great way to support your own child’s success, as well as have a window into their middle school world!

Parents can sign up to volunteer every week, every other week or once a month. All volunteers will need to have a completed BSD volunteer application on file, you can find information Here. There will be an orientation meeting in late summer or early fall.

Please contact Annie Roth if you would like more information or if you would like to sign up to participate.

Sign up for Incoming Kindergartener Summer Playdates
Do you have an incoming kindergartener or know someone who does? We will be coordinating play dates during the summer so the newest Medina Tigers can get to know each other. If you are interested in being included, please sign up on our website.

Ambassadors facilitate two-way conversations between individual schools and the Foundation that serves them all. They help Foundation staff and board members to learn how each school's PTSA, principals, and teachers can be supported. Throughout the year, ambassadors work closely with Foundation staff to raise awareness of the Foundation and the difference our donors make for Bellevue students.Their volunteer role is essential in enabling the Foundation to fulfill its mission.  The following schools have open positions next year: Bennett, Chinook, Eastgate, ... read full article
