Support Staff

Our floaters provides extra helping hands throughout the day. You might find them in "lunch bunch", doing carpool or afternoon dismissals, preparing snacks, gathering craft supplies, helping teachers with projects or comforting a child who is having a difficult day.  Floaters help with parent coffees, school events and programs, ordering supplies...and subbing wherever needed.
