Volunteers wanted! Recess supervision

With the return to campus, we have staggered recess schedules. This has led to a new volunteer opportunity — helping supervise, to ensure a safe and fun playing environment for our hybrid program students during recess and lunch. Coverage is needed for three staggered recesses and three staggered lunch times. Our hybrid schedules are still being worked out, but if you are interested in volunteering (or learning more when we know more) please email pta@duveneck.org.

Duveneck International Cookbook — Let’s celebrate our diverse cultures!

One of Duveneck’s favorite traditions is the International Potluck, held every Fall. It’s a wonderful way to share the family traditions and diverse heritage within our Duveneck community. It’s also where many first conversations between families start and friendships bloom. While unfortunately we can’t get together this year in person, we can still share our favorite recipes and learn about one another’s diverse cultures. So we’d like to create the first ever Duveneck International Cookbook — and we do need a few parents to help out! We will need help organizing recipes, designing the cookbook, and all the other little things we haven’t thought of just yet. If you are interested in joining the International Cookbook team, please email Katie and/or Jane: kathrynkostal@gmail.comjanesnyder01@gmail.com.

Join us for our first Parent Education webinar: Navigating Remote Learning for Families Tuesday, October 27, 7:00-8:00pm

Mandarin and Spanish translation will be available.

No matter whether you’re choosing Hybrid or Full Distance Learning, online learning will continue to play a big part in your child’s school experience. To help our families, we’re partnering with Challenge Success to provide practical advice on what you can do to support your child’s well-being and engagement with learning at home. In addition, we will talk about how parents can assist their children during this time of transition as they move to new learning models, teachers, and classmates. So please join us for what will be an informative evening!
