Do you remember how nervous you and your child were on the first day of school? One way SPS helps new families adjust and feel more comfortable in their new environment is through the “New Family Ambassador Program.” If you think you would like to be that friendly supportive face of SPS, be a valuable resource for helping a new family resolve those "little unanswered" questions that arise about two weeks before and two weeks after school begins, then we would love to have you volunteer.
A New Family Ambassador would involve reaching out to your assigned family and facilitate that first strong relationship at SPS, help them answer questions as they arise, and in the end you will receive nine credits of service.
This year the New Family Picnic will be held on Thursday, August 23rd. Here you will have the opportunity to meet with your assigned family, as well as other new families. It’s a great event to help kick off the new school year. If you are unable to attend the picnic, you can still volunteer to be a New Family Ambassador. Please consider volunteering and more details will follow in the coming weeks.
Thank you for your time and consideration,
Gayle Lundy & Jen Filart
