Donation and volunteers needed for conference days!

Conferences will be taking place on Thursday, November 29 and Friday, November 30, and there are two great ways families can help. Please remember that GRS asks each family to contribute 20 hours of volunteer time per year, and consider singing up to help!

Email peg@greatriverschool.org with any questions. Thank you!

1. We're looking for parents to help staff the first ever book fair at GRS! The book fair will support the development of elementary classroom libraries—families can purchase books directly for the classrooms from teacher wish lists, or they can purchase books for themselves that will add credit for GRS to make book purchases. The fair will be held during the two days of conferences, Thursday and Friday 11/29 and 11/30. Please consider signing up for a slot to help support this important initiative that will directly impact elementary classrooms! Volunteers will receive a brief training video to view.

2. With the new kitchen still in process, we're not able to offer our traditional (and beloved) show of appreciation to faculty and staff with community-made meals during conference days. Instead, this fall GRS will be bringing in food to sustain the teachers during their long conference days. But we still need some donations, along with help setting up, serving, and cleaning up after these meals! Please consider signing up to donate or for a shift for Thursday dinner, Friday breakfast, or Friday lunch—see the signup for times.
