Volunteers Needed at Masterman School through End of Busy School Year.

Spring is the season where everything picks up -- school and sports activities, fundraising, politics, school funding advocacy. Amid all that bustle, Masterman still needs volunteers through the rest of the school year.

Can you help? If you have your district-required security clearances – and even if you can only pick up one task on one day -- please sign up using our VolunteerSpot online scheduling and reminder tool at http://vols.pt/RNeZ1u! Your contribution will help the school operate more smoothly as we close out the year..

The volunteer tasks (and their regular times) that need coverage each school day are:

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

Help in the Front Office -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 dedicated parents, guardians and caregivers have obtained their clearances to help regularly at the school during the school day.

If you'd like to volunteer, but don't yet have security clearances, see http://bit.ly/17C6tET for our FAQs about Security Clearances and links to instructions about how to obtain them. (FAQ #4 in this document tells how you can volunteer while you are waiting for your security clearances.)

For more information about security clearances or volunteering, contact Janet Pinkerton, Masterman Home and School Association’s volunteer coordinator, at jepinkerton@gmail.com.
