Hello wonderful parents!
We hope you have had a fantastic school year and are busy making plans to escape Arizona’s heat this summer!
We have one more major event for the year and we need plenty of parents on hand to help corral the roughly 300 kids who are attending. Spring Kids’ Night Out is going to be unlike any previous KNO. We have a master chemist, creating crazy experiments for the kids; a magician showing them how science and a little distraction can be thoroughly entertaining; and an astronomy expert, showing them the mysteries of our universe. It’s going to be fabulous!!! If I wasn’t running the event, I would be attending just so I could be part of the fun!!
With all that said, you indicated at the start of the year that you would like to help with our events, and we need you! KNO is April 27, from 4:45-9:00pm. There are 2 times we need your help.
- If you can attend on April 27th, possible assignments for the evening include: helping the kids with their experiments in the classroom while the teacher gives instructions, transporting small groups of kids to different activity centers, taking kids on bathroom breaks, refilling supplies, handing out snacks, matching kid to parent at the end of the evening, etc. I promise it isn’t anything too hard and you will not be in charge of anything all by yourself. We also have a group of teens to do the really messy stuff like serving and cleaning up dinner and collecting the trash in the classrooms, along with mopping the cafeteria afterwards.
- There are also a few things that can be done at home easily. Some example jobs: cutting eyes, ears, noses, etc out of magazines for an art project or cutting bottoms off of cups, and washing out bottles or jars for a project. Or maybe you miss your days at a data entry job, or love computers? We could use some help getting name tags, rosters, and check-in cards made. We even have last year’s mail merge file for you to adapt if you want. You don’t even have to type the data! We will email you a spreadsheet 🙂
Now for the sweet part. Not only do you get to see all of the cool stuff for the evening, but if you help at the event on April 27, you also get $8 off your kid’s registration fee. It will be in an envelope at the check-out desk at the end of the night for you. If you can convince your spouse to come, you each get the $8!
If you help at home, in exchange for your time, we are offering $1 off of your KNO registration (up to $4 total) for each hour you work, paid in cash when you return the items to school.
As you can see, it takes a lot of time and effort to create a special night for our kids. We are so appreciative of anything you are willing to do to help! You are the most important part of our team!
Please sign up by Monday, April 23.
