CCHS SOPHOMORE LIGHT GROUP
Hello LIGHT Group Parent Volunteers:
LIGHT stands for Living in God’s House Together. Our CCHS Sophomores are fortunate enough to spend a school day this year making a difference in their community by volunteering at one of several San Diego County inner-city parochial schools. Almost every Wednesday this year, a group of 20 students, alongside a teacher or two, a pair of Campus Ministry leaders, and parent volunteers, will assist the elementary school staff with supervision in the classroom and the playground.
In order to do such work, we need YOUR support, too.
Volunteers are asked to meet at CCHS's Chapel at 8am on your assigned day.
After prayer and any last minute announcements, all the group will be taken by CCHS Bus to the elementary school and back again. The bus will return by 12:15pm in time for lunch on campus for students.
Please wear comfortable clothing (long pants and closed toe shoes). Ladies, it is advised to carry your wallet/keys in a fanny pack or small backpack so as to not misplace purses, etc.
Before chaperoning, it is necessary for NEW parent volunteers to complete some paperwork. For those of you who were cleared last year at CCHS, your clearance is still good.
New Volunteers, please go to CCHS’s website, hit the Parents Tab, then Volunteer, and then hit the “Safe Environment Training Program.”
This latter link will take you to the CMGConnect website to start the clearance process.
Coordinators will also send you 3 quick forms to print at home, sign, and return to Tina Martinez in the Business Office. You can also scan and email these documents to: [email protected] .
The LIGHT program depends on repeat volunteers, so please feel free to sign up as often as you’d like. Any time is appreciated! You will find the available Wednesday slots here on SIGN UP GENIUS. Please do your best to anticipate any issues with the date you choose now before you commit. Each trip does require the extra assistance/eyes of parent volunteers and it is very difficult to find substitutes last minute.
Thanks! You will certainly enjoy watching our CCHS kids “being the hands and feet of Christ."
