Catholic Schools Office
Thank you for signing up to be a volunteer in the Catholic Schools tent at the Des Moines Art Festival, June 28-30, 2019 held at Western Gateway Park. You will be representing your school to approximately 7,000 festival attendees in the Creative Zone by helping with free art activities. The art activities are simple and instructions will be provided once you arrive. STUDENTS EARNING SERVICE HOURS SHOULD SIGN IN/SIGN OUT IN THE TENT. PLEASE ASK THE ADULT TO INITIAL YOUR SIGN IN/OUT. ***PLEASE CONSIDER THE AGE OF YOUR VOLUNTEER. YOUNGER VOLUNTEERS MUST HAVE A PARENT CHAPERONE.***
1) Plan to arrive 10-15 minutes prior to your shift in order to get from your vehicle to our tent and plan to stay the entirety of your time slot. Adults will need to initial the student sign in sheet as students arrive/leave, just to confirm they were at the festival for their service hours.
2) All volunteers should wear a shirt with their school name/logo or spirit wear.
3)Be welcoming and friendly to the public. Be helpful with the art activities. Instructions will be provided and the art is easy to complete.
4)If parents have questions or would like more information about Catholic schools, please feel free to engage in conversations. We will also have general Catholic schools marketing materials on hand that you can distribute.
5)We encourage volunteers to bring marketing materials from their respective schools to hand out to interested adults i.e. flyers, brochures, pens, pencils, etc.
