WordMasters® would love more volunteers!
The WordMasters Challenge™ is a vocabulary competition based on completing analogies. This program is supported by PTSA volunteers outside the classroom to offer additional vocabulary learning for participating students. Meets are held right in your own school three times per year.
In September 2016, the PTSA will be looking for adult volunteers to help ensure this program is available to all student who wish to participate.
These roles offer flexibility and the chance to work in the school throughout the school year. Production Room volunteers make copies and assemble other class materials for the staff. Media Center volunteers shelve and straighten books in our media center.
