Butterfly Pavilion would like to get the word out to your students about our summer volunteer program for teens. It’s a great opportunity for youth age 13-17 to learn leadership and job skills, work alongside their peers and gain knowledge about conservation, invertebrates and the local and global environment.

The application deadline is April 20th, so that we can interview the students and get them oriented before the summer begins. Please share the attached flyer with your students, and feel free to send me any questions you have.

Thank you for your assistance and for all you do,

Leslie Hendrikson


Butterfly Pavilion

6252 West 104th Avenue Westminster, CO 80020


When: 1:30-3:00 on the afternoon of April 10th

What: Carnival Game/event - See Alex Jacobsen for details

More Info: The Chick-fil-A Leader Academy has been busy planning an impact project for the spring and landed on the idea of hosting a healthy, fun environment for students to unwind after they take the PSAT/SAT test on the afternoon of April 10th. One of their goals through hosting this event is to unite the RV community in light of recent events related to school shootings. As we brainstormed how to do this, the idea of RV clubs joining in on the fun seemed like a great way to get more students involved.

In addition to some larger more competitive events, we are planning on having a carnival like atmosphere in the grassy area outside of the cafeteria from 1:30-3:00 on the afternoon of April 10th. We are asking any clubs that are interested in participating in this event to create a carnival game booth to host for this time. Clubs would be responsible for creating their game, manning the booth, and cleanup after the event. Prizes would be at your discretion (We will plan on giving a piece of candy to winners of our booth).

Thank you for all that you do for the Ralston Valley community!

The Science Fair will be open for viewing by families between 4:30 – 7:30 pm on Friday, February 16, 2018. Science demonstrations and judging will take place from 4:30 – 6:00 pm. The glider contest will take place following judging completion at approximately 6:00 pm. Awards will immediately follow the glider contest at approximately 7:00 pm.

Judges are needed to assess the projects using a prepared questionnaire, scientific expertise/interest is not necessary, but certainly a bonus!

Feel free to sign-up for the first or second shift or both, but we will mostly need judging help (first shift).

Parade of Lights

My name is Alex Menos – Volunteer Coordinator for this year’s 9NEWS Parade of Lights. I wanted to extend to you an opportunity for Ralston Valley High School to get involved with the Parade of Lights this year! I’m not positive if there is a better contact to send this to. If so, could you forward this email or let me know who to contact, thank you!

The 43rd annual 9NEWS Parade of Lights is quickly approaching. Mark your calendar for December 1st and 2nd to plan to be a part of the Rocky Mountain region’s largest holiday celebration!

Volunteers are an essential part of the parade and vital to the overall success of the event. We rely on volunteers for costume characters, balloon handlers, banner carriers, and much more. The parade is a great opportunity for school organizations to have a fun opportunity to volunteer together. Groups like Student Councils, Key Clubs, IB, FCLA, FBLA, DECA and NHS and multiple sports teams have all joined in the fun for many years, and we want to offer this unique opportunity to your group also!

Attached is a list of opportunities that can accommodate large groups or smaller groups. We do our best to place groups in their first preference, but we ask that you be flexible with us. Please note that we must have a filled out online application for each person that wants to participate (But make sure they all write the same group). Link to Application <>

Please review all information in the application carefully and fill it out by as soon as possible. Our first deadline is Monday, October 23rd. (this is our initial deadline but it can still be filled out after). The earlier we receive your application, the better your chances of being assigned to the position of your choice! Every person that wants to volunteer must fill out an application to be assigned a spot!

We are looking forward to the 2017 Parade and hope to have you join us as a part of our Volunteer Team. If you have any questions please feel free to contact Alex Menos via e-mail at <> or by phone at (303) 295-3660.

Sincerely, Alex Menos

More: I've had many high school volunteers from your schools in the past, and I've found it to be a very successful, and powerful way to build connections between our high school students and elementary school students that may be feeding into your buildings someday. I would greatly appreciate any help you could give me with this endeavor, even if that's just directing me to a student council leader, coach/sports team, honor society leaders etc. Volunteers will be provided lunch, refreshments and a day full of fun!

I greatly appreciate your time and any support you can give me and our students/staff here at Foster Elementary.
