Eagle Dad’s Volunteer Day

Calling all our awesome Selwyn Dads! On Friday, April 13th we will be holding our Spring Eagle Dads Volunteer Day. We would love for our Dads to have an outstanding presence at Selwyn by helping with morning carpool, serving as lunchroom monitors and assisting with campus clean-up items. We have added some afternoon spots, so come grab your child(ren), help out around Selwyn and head out to celebrate your work with all the other wonderful Dads!

We also ask that you check your child’s class calendar to see if there is a need to help a special area teacher on that day for your child’s class. Come join in the fun!! Refreshments will be served in the parent room.
