Big Backyard Kindergarten
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.
Please note: new this year, a training for each walk takes place immediately before your walk with the students. During the training, we will review important concepts for the session, preview the walk together, and answer any questions. The sign up times below include both training and walk. For example, if the Sign Up Genius time is 10am-11am, the training is 10-10:30am; the walk with students is 10:30am-11am.
Please meet in the lobby of Harrington for training. Wear boots and warm clothes for the weather. Walks take place in light drizzle or snow and in temperatues 19 degrees fahrenheit and above with the wind chill factor. Watch for emails before the walk in case of rescheduling.
Please review the kindergarten walk guide before the walk.
For reference, here is the overall Harrington Big Backyard Calendar.
If you cannot attend the training or arrive late, please email or text Gretchen, Harrington BBY co-coordinator ([email protected]; 617 686 4362) -- we still want you!
Finally, all parent volunteers must be CORI checked by the Harrington office before the day of the walk. If you haven't filled out the CORI paperwork, it's easy and takes just a few minutes -- Jennifer Minasian in the front office will help. Please bring your drivers' license or other government-issued ID. (CORI is a state criminal background check that is required of all adults before they work with students.) CORI checks are good for 3 years.
THANK YOU! Your involvement makes Big Backyard happen. Thank you!!!
