Book-It Program: This is a free program run by Pizza Hut. Simply put, the students reach a monthly reading goal set by their teachers, and they will receive a free personal pan pizza from Pizza Hut. Student participation is optional. The program runs from October-March and requires about 2 hours of volunteer time per month over that 6 month period. Most of the work can be done at your home counting minutes and filling out pizza certificates. In-school time is only required for photocopying the blank monthly calendars and putting them into the teacher’s boxes.

Book-It Beginners: Similar to the Book-It program, but for K3 & K4 students. Their teachers and parents read to them for goal achievement. The program only runs in March and April. It requires photocopying and distributing some information at the beginning of the program, and then filling out and distributing the certificates in March and April. Volunteer time is approximately 2 hours each month over the 2 month period.

Box Tops: BoxTops for education is a program run by Betty Crocker. You may have seen the BoxTops for Education “coupon” on Betty Crocker products. Each one represents 10 cents to our school when they are redeemed through the school and Betty Crocker. The amount of time for clipping, counting and sorting boxtops varies depending on how many boxtops are turned in. This could be done at school or at home.

Digital Dads: We are seeking Dads (or Moms) who are digitally savvy to record the Christmas Program, K5 Graduation and 1st-8th Awards Night Programs on DVD Video and to burn copies for our library. Also, if anyone has website design knowledge, perhaps information could be examined for the possible creation of a school website.

Library Set-Up Volunteers: We are trying to get our School Library organized and off-the-ground! This requires the printing of card catalogue index cards and book jacket cards by taking a box of books home and printing the cards on your home computer from the Library of Congress Website.

Christian Collection Fall Fundraiser: Our schools annual fundraiser opportunity, this will be the 2nd year for the school’s participation. We volunteers to help count orders! Campaign runs from August 17th – August 31st and volunteer time will only be at the school.

Fall Book Fair: Scholastic Book Fairs help raise money for our school. The book sales last for 5 days and requires 5 volunteers (1 for each day) to ring up the sales! Book Sales are from 3:30pm to 5:30pm.

Fall Festival: Our school’s annual festival that lets families come and have a fun, family oriented evening playing games, winning prizes, eating food and participating in activities. We need LOTS of parents to volunteer time to run games booths for 1/2 hour intervals.

Spare Change Box Collection: You may have noticed the “spare change” collection boxes around the Town of Chipley. We are looking for people to help collect the money from these boxes on a monthly or “as-needed” basis. We are also looking to possibly expand the program – if you have a business or work at a company which is willing to display our boxes, let us know!

WCCS T.E.A.M. Newsletter: Got a gift of writing and lots of creativity that needs an outlet? Consider working on the Newsletter! The newsletter is turned into the office on Wednesday for review, editing, copying and distribution by the end of the day on Thursday. Newsletters go out every Friday.
