Art Volunteers/Free UTown Program/Free Baseball Games

Art Volunteers

Ms. Tamara is looking for some art volunteers, as she has switched from music to art for the spring term.

Duties include such things as washing paint brushes, displaying students’ art work and helping to  maintain art supplies (eg, sharpening pencils).

Help is welcome any day or days of the week after school, for as little or as much time as you can spare.  Some jobs can also be done at home, or displaying artwork can be done during school hours.

Please contact Ms. Tamara at tball@vsb.bc.ca if you would like to help out.  Thank you so much!

Terry Fox Run April 26 – Call for Parent Volunteers

On April 26th from 1-3pm NRP will have our annual Terry Fox Run. The K-3 grades will be running around the school and the 4-8`s will be running a longer route that has been plotted in the Endowment Lands.

As in previous years, in order to make the run safe and a success we need parent help.

The school is hoping to get 40 parents to stand along the Grade 4-8 route and about 20 to do the same for the K-3 route. If you are able to help (and while I work on setting up the volunteer sign up sheet on the website) please email the PAC at rosepointpac@gmail.com

Please indicate if you are volunteering for the Grade 4-8 or K-3 run or if you have no preference.

Also, we are looking for about 6-10 parents willing to come in about 11:15am to help cut oranges for the students to have after the run. Please let us know if you can help with that as well.

Thank you for continuing to support the school.
