RAGING WAVES - PLUNGE INTO FITNESS

Students who handed in their incentive on time will receive their Raging Waves ticket in backpack mail this week. The deadline has passed and we are no longer accepting forms. Thanks to all who participated!



CAREER DAY

Join us for our annual Career Day on Friday, May 10th from 1:30-3:30 pm. We are looking for 8 exciting speakers who have interesting careers to share with our students. Are you a pilot, flight attendant, carpenter, builder, journalist, radio announcer, scientist, or grocery store manager? Do you know a roofer, accountant, judge, actor, animal groomer that you would like to recommend us to contact? You DO NOT need to be the parents of 4th and 5th graders to volunteer! The responsibilities of the speakers are very simple:

· You will give a presentation about your career lasting 15 minutes to 4 groups of students.

· Not sure what to talk about? We can assist you with talking points.

Don’t like public speaking? Consider being a parent volunteer to help out in the classroom. The responsibilities of the parent volunteer include:

· Introduce the name of the speaker and ask the students to applaud the speaker before and after the talk

· Monitor the time and give the speaker a reminder when there is 5 minutes remaining

· Ask the students to quietly get up and move to another classroom



Questions? Contact Tracy Leung (630) 640-6501 or tracy1000@gmail.com if you are interested in either one of these 2 positions. Please include your name, phone number, and your profession. Thank you very much in advance for your interest in helping out!
