Clinton School needs your help!
The Elementors program, sponsored by the Parenting Center, is a collaboration between Columbia High School students and Clinton School students during recess. Participating high school students teach a sport (like soccer, Ultimate Frisbee or football) and accompanying skills, and act as mentors to 4th or 5th grade students. Beginning in the fall, once a week for 6 weeks, a parent volunteer is needed during the lunch period to supervise students and and ensure Elementors get from Columbia High School to Clinton, and back again (via district bus service). The volunteer also makes sure students eat lunch that is provided by the district.
If you are interested in assisting with this very worthwhile program, please email Keli Tianga or call by phone at 973-763-1942. Thank you.
