Ray School is being asked to provide volunteers to staff a Ray School table at the Network 9 Back-to-School Bash on Friday, August 9 at Williams Prep High School (4934 S. Wabash). If you would be willing to represent Ray at this event -- that would mean answering questions, connecting Ray families attending this event with one another, and handing out CPS material -- please sign up for a shift via this link:
We're looking for parent volunteers to help with recess. We could especially use help with 1st grade from 10:45-11:00 am, Kindergarten from 11:00-11:25 am, and 3rd/6th grades from noon-12:30 pm. On rainy days, we need parents to staff a games room and a quiet reading room, ideally.
Please send Ms. Neely an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you're able to help out. Thank you!
Drop and Go
The LSC safety committee is seeking volunteers for the Drop and Go. Between 8:20 and 8:50 am we help to get students into the Ray School safely and on time. This is a difficult time for working parents but if one person from your family can help out we can increase the on time rate for the school. For more information or to sign-up to volunteer, please contact David at email@example.com.
Afternoon Traffic Control Volunteers
Do you or could you regularly arrive to pick up your student 20-30 minutes before the 3:45 pm bell? If so, we could use your help managing afternoon traffic. Kimbark Avenue between 56th and 57th streets are closed to all vehicles with the exception of school buses, student transport vans, and Pre-K parent cars every afternoon between 3:15-3:45 pm. We need volunteers to manage the sawhorse on Kimbark Avenue and 56th Street, and open it only for authorized vehicles.
If you are interested, please contact Principal Megan Thole at firstname.lastname@example.org.
