Visual Art Docents Needed
The Olympia School District is interested in expanding it's visual arts program in the elementary schools. To accomplish this goal, we are seeking volunteers to teach our students.
Art docents deliver monthly art lessons in K-5 classrooms. They are typically assisted by the classroom teacher and a work study staff member. Each lesson is 60-75 minutes and lesson-specific materials are delivered to the school ahead of time. We use the much acclaimed Deep Space Sparkle curriculum.
We offer convenient and flexible schedules to our docents, and they are trained by our Visual Arts Coordinator, Kirstin Holstrom, who is a 3rd grade teacher at Centennial.
If you’re interested, or know someone who may be interested, please contact Kirstin via email at email@example.com or call/text her cell at 360.701.0615.
Before/After School Care
Roosevelt Elementary partners with the YMCA to offer before and after school childcare for working families. The YMCA's program is called Y-Care. The Y-Care coordinator can be reached by calling 705-2642. The 2016-17 application packet is attached. Please contact Y-Care staff directly for information related to this program.
