The Albion Elementary School has a large volunteer program (200+ people) including parents, senior citizens, community persons, middle school and high school students.
Individuals volunteer on a regular basis (weekly) or for special functions and activities. A volunteer may work in a variety of areas. Some work with teachers and students in the classrooms.
As a volunteer, you may have a student read to you, assist with work sheets, or help review homework. The teacher may have you help by cutting out shapes and various items, create a bulletin board, or help organize the room.
Volunteers may help in special areas. One may be needed to lend a hand with various art projects, help with Accelerated Reader, or in the Media Center with shelving books, or organizing new materials.
