Prestonwood Elementary School, a far North Dallas Title 1 School, is looking for your support. As you may know, financial resources provided by the state of Texas to school districts and individual schools are limited. Therefore, individual school support from the PTA (Parent Teacher Association) and local businesses and organizations is critical. We are in need of community members to give their time as Reading Tutors, Math Tutors, Vocabulary Tutors and help in our school library. Our PTA has launched a new and improved website that allows us to have community members log in and find volunteer opportunities via a "sign-up genius-like" electronic form. .
1. Go to www.pwepta.org and click "Log In" in the top right yellow tool bar
2. Select "community" when asked "How are you connected to our school"
3. Click "Volunteer" in the yellow tool bar, then "RISD Opportunites Form" to apply for your RISD Background Check. This must be completed every year to volunteer in any RISD school.
4. Then, click "Volunteer" again to sign up to tutor our students in math, reading or vocabulary.
They have requested that volunteers sign-up by the Friday before the week in which you are going to volunteer. You can sign-up to tutor once, every other week or weekly----whatever works for your schedule. You might even want to try different grades at first and find out where you are most comfortable. All materials will be waiting for you when you arrive. If you have any questions about how to log in to the Prestonwood website, please let me know. You will need to create an account, but that is only so they know who is signing up and they will have your email in case there is a need to cancel an event. I would be glad to discuss Prestonwood and their volunteer opportunities, so please contact me with any questions.
I will have a notice in the first newsletter each month asking for you to send me an email with any volunteer hours you have worked in the previous months so that we can record them for your PCWL records.
