Hello Big Backyard Volunteers,
Thank you for volunteering to help out with your child's Big Backyard walk, YOU make this walk possible. No previous experience is required; we will provide everything you need for the walk.
Rain dates are listed for all classes, just in case. Please sign up for the original walk day and/or the rain date -- whichever you're able to do.
Please review the Grade One Winter walk guide before the walk. No need to memorize!! That said, general familiarity with the themes of the walk will be helpful.
There will be an on-site training the morning of the walk. We'll review the walk's main ideas, look around the school yard for places to take students, and answer any questions.
TRAININGS WILL TAKE PLACE IMMEDIATELY BEFORE EACH WALK with the earliest time to coincide with morning drop off. The SignUp time includes both training and classroom walk. Please meet inside, in the front lobby (near the office). Please be in touch if you can't make the training, or are arriving late (we still want you!): [email protected]; text to 617 686 4362.
Wear waterproof boots and appropriate attire for the weather. Walks take place in light drizzle or snow and in temperatures above 19 degrees Fahrenheit with the wind chill. Watch for emails before the walk in case of rescheduling.
Finally, all parent volunteers must be CORI checked through the Harrington office before the day of the walk. If you haven't yet done this, see Jennifer Minasian in the front office; it's quick and easy. Bring a drivers' license or other government issued ID. CORI checks are good for 3 years.
Big Backyard only happens because of you -- thank you! Looking forward to a year of many happy discoveries together!
