Opportunities to Help our CATCH Committee

Welcome to the 2017-18 school year!  As we get this year rolling, our wonderful CATCH committee could use your help!   Check out these exciting opportunities to keep our school and students health:

Co-Chair Committee

Health and Wellness Fair and Family Fun Run

This popular event will be held on February 1st, 2018.  We will put out a specific call for volunteers in January but please keep this on your radar.  This is a very popular and successful event which needs the support of parent volunteers.

Gardening Helpers

Part of the CATCH Committee’s mission is to encourage students’ knowledge of gardening in order to deepen connections between where our food comes from and how the organic fruits and veggies we grow ourselves contribute to our health and well-being.

We need parent volunteers to dig, weed, plant, harvest, measure, conduct experiments, and most important, have fun with students as they spend a few more glorious minutes each week outside. Email Annemarie.hampshire@gmail.com for more information.
