ECC Cafeteria Volunteers Needed

The ECC is in need of cafeteria volunteers on a consistent weekly basis. We need people that can commit to a day or two each week for a scheduled time to come and assist. Times are either 11:15am-11:45am or 11:45am-12:15pm.

It would be great if we could have a volunteer out in the hallway to help the kids wait in-line, take turns, get their trays, etc. Inside the cafeteria, we would like someone to help open containers for kids, help them clean up, etc. It would be great if a volunteer could also remind kids of the rules (which are posted on the tables).

If you are available to help during either of these times for the remainder of the school year on a consistent basis please send me an email and I will send you further information. Please let me know if you have any questions! easingleton@gmail.com

Thank you!
