    ART GOES TO SCHOOL
    This is an art enrichment program where prior teaching or art experience is not necessary.  Art Goes to School provides full orientation to prepare volunteers.  Parent volunteers will be trained from fall through spring.  They will then present art productions into classrooms by way of a program encouraging children to respond to art and share ideas and feelings.

    BIRTHDAY BASH
    Each month, those children celebrating a birthday in that month are called up on stage during their lunch period to have lunch and a healthy snack with Mr. Bucci.   July birthdays are celebrated in June and August birthdays are celebrated in September. As kindergartners do not attend regular lunch hours, they are not included in the Birthday Bash.

    BOOK FAIR
    Volunteers will assist the coordinators in setting up the book displays, assisting the children in the selection of books to be purchased and receiving the payments.

    (Not scheduled for 2016-2017)  The Glenwood Read-A-Thon program is a program that takes place in the month of February, where the children are challenged to read and collect money for the amount of pages read. This program starts off with a kick off assembly for the children and ends with another assembly where prizes and awards are distributed. Volunteers will assist the coordinators in the organizing and implementation of this program.  This program runs every other year.  Proceeds benefit the Glenwood library.

    GLENWOOD YEARBOOK
    Volunteers will assist the coordinators in the printing of the annual yearbook. This includes taking candid pictures during the year and helping to plan and lay out the yearbook. We need someone willing to collect and coordinate yearbook payments along with distribution of the yearbooks.  We are looking for a representative from each class who would be responsible for getting pictures of all classroom activities. Page creators will do the lay out for their classroom page in the yearbook.

    LIBRARY VOLUNTEER
    Consider becoming a library volunteer! Mr. G would appreciate your help.

    Volunteers may help out during their children’s regularly-scheduled library sessions (especially in grades K-2).  Students get more attention and guidance in book selection, and parents enjoy seeing their children’s classes.  Parents may also stop in as they have time to re-shelve books or “read” the shelves, and help is especially needed during our book fair.

    Please contact Glenwood's librarian Mr. Grisillo at  (610) 627-6919 or e-mail agrisill@rtmsd.org with any questions.
