Are you a kid at heart and just want to play? Bear Creek PTA has a volunteer job for you: RECESS HELPER!

We are looking for dads, grandpas etc. (moms, grandmas welcome too) to referee games (football, etc.) and distribute equipment at the morning recess (8:30 am – 9 am). It’s a great start to the day and the kids love it.

Training on Monday, March 16 @ 7 pm in the Bear Creek library. Mrs. White will facilitate the training and will discuss paperwork needed, discipline and discretion. Whether you are able to volunteer several times and week, once a week or even once a month please join us for the training.
