When volunteers are permitted inside the school, the Helping Hands Committee helps students in kindergarten and first grade during their lunch periods. The students often need help obtaining forgotten utensils and napkins or opening containers and condiments; volunteers provide that assistance. Eliminating this obstacle for students gives them enough time to finish their lunch and makes the lunch period, as a whole, a more stress-free experience for everyone involved.
Kindergarten eats lunch from 11:20–11:50 am and first grade eats lunch from 11:35 am–12:05 pm. You will be asked to volunteer for the full 45-minute lunch block, which covers both kindergarten and first grade lunches.
