Do you like to bake?  We need volunteers to bake for the staff birthdays.  We need a parent per month to bake (and package individually)treats for each staff member having b-days that month, anything from cupcakes, mini loaves of breads, cookies, chocolate, anything that you can think of.  You will bring it to school on the designated day or arrangements can be made to to pick up the night before. Please contact Rachel Karnes ( if you are interested or have any questions.



To volunteer on a regular basis with the kids in the classroom, you are required by Virginia State Law to have a certificate from the local health department stating that you have been screened or tested, and appear to be free of communicable tuberculosis disease.  Once you have this screening certificate on file with our school, you do NOT have to renew - it is sufficient year to year.  Please view this TB Screening and Volunteer Procedures for more details.
