On-Going Programs
 
Helping Hands  
Helping Hands is a program set up to help teachers with work they may need an extra hand with.   They may have things to be copied, projects to be cut out, pencils to be sharpened, shapes or letters to be cut for classrooms, or many other things. By doing these small projects for the teachers it allows them to spend more time with the students.  The program is facilitated through a PTA chairperson who will contact those who volunteer on a need basis.  This is a great way to be involved in the school and meet other parents.

Red Wolf Bookstore
The Red Wolf Book Store is held on the second Thursday of every month and gives our children the opportunity to buy a brand new book for only $1. There is a wide range of books to cover every reading level and all interests. The money earned from every sale goes back towards the purchase of new books.
 
Volunteer Opportunities: Stamp books, work during the lunch hour selling the books to the children.
