Below is a brief description of the duties of each job:
STATION LEADS: Don't worry it is VERY easy to do! We have a bin with a folder full of instructions for each station. You will pick up your bin from the PTO copy room (green hallway) on MONDAY, APRIL 8th after 12pm. Your job is to check to see if there are things that need to be done prior to the actual day. Plan for 120 students. I will touch base with those that need to order or purchase things for their station. If you choose this job you must FULLY COMMIT to being present at Pioneer Day and to preparing your station. (Some people choose to have a partner Lead with them. If so, one person is listed as the Lead and the other is the first person listed under HELPERS.)
STATION HELPERS: You will be present day of. You will work with the kids and follow the instructions of the Station Leader. You will stay at your station for the duration of the morning or afternoon.
CLASS HELPERS: You will walk around with your chosen class for the duration of the morning or afternoon. You will assist the teacher and kids with station activities and help with bathroom breaks.
CLASS PHOTOGRAPHERS: You are asked to take pictures of all students in your chosen class during the day. (We prefer this to be an ALL-DAY job...if you are able please check both the AM & PM photographer slot for the teacher of your choice. If not you can, please just pick the session you can do.) You also must be willing to upload all photographs to your chosen teacher with-in the week following Pioneer Day. You must use your own camera.
