Masterman School Needs Parent/Guardian Volunteers in 2015

posted Jan 4, 2015, 3:09 PM by David Ortiz

As we enter the back half of the school year, Masterman School needs parents and guardians with security clearances to volunteer at the school in 2015.

If you are a parent or guardian with security clearances, please take a look at Volunteer at Masterman School schedule at http://vols.pt/RNeZ1u and sign-up using VolunteerSpot, our online volunteer scheduling and reminder tool. The volunteer tasks (and their regular start-stop times) that need coverage each school day are:

Monitor the Cafeteria Before School - 7:15 - 8:10 am

Front Office - 1st Shift -7:30 - 8:30 am

Monitor 5th & 6th Graders on Patio - 7:45 - 8:15 am

Monitor 7-8th Graders in Auditorium - 7:45 - 8:15 am

Late Desk - 8:00 - 9:00 am

Monitor High School Lunch/Roof Recess - 10:13 - 11:04 am

Monitor 7th Grade Lunch/Roof Recess - 11:04 - 11:55 am

Monitor 5th/6th Grade Lunch/Roof Recess - 11:55 am - 12:46 pm

Monitor 8th Grade Lunch/Roof Recess - 12:46 - 1:37 pm          

End of Day/Dismissal - 3:19 - 4:30 pm

These tasks would typically be filled by school staff but are not – for a second year -- due to the School District of Philadelphia’s ongoing budget crisis and staff cutbacks. Dozens of parent/guardian volunteers have obtained the district-required security clearances to regularly help in these roles at the school. Their contribution is both supporting school operations and boosting staff morale. Yet more volunteers with security clearances are needed to support the school in 2015.
