For those interested in working with Lower School students, here is a collection of opportunities for you! These include joining third and fourth graders at recess (they always need a good referee), AE day passion class assistant, and more.

Our most immediate need is for AE Day on February 24 (9:30-11:00) and Grandparents Day on April 7 (9:00-11:00).
