Volunteer Opportunities at the Loft

The Loft has volunteer opportunities THIS Saturday, 4/23/22, to help with a handbag fundraiser. Please feel free to sign up for a shift by using the Sign Up Genius.

Keep in mind you can work on getting your hours for next year this summer and can volunteer at the Loft on Wednesdays from 9:30 AM to 11:30 AM or Wednesdays from 4:00 PM to 5:30 PM. There are also some shifts available on Saturdays from 12:45 PM to 2:30 PM. Sign up for shifts using the Sign Up Genius.

The Edible Classroom is Looking for Help

On March 5th, students will be painting the first coat on small wooden signs that will mark the names of the vegetables we’ll be growing in our school gardens…Central Manor and Conestoga Elementary to name a few :). No artistic ability necessary for painting the colorful base coat. This is an outdoor event, so if it rains we’ll have to cancel.

Please use the Sign Up Genius, if interested.


Do you have nice handwriting? After the first coat dries, we’ll be writing the vegetable names in English and Spanish using paint pens. The paint won’t be dry by the end of our time together March 5 so we’ll have to do it another day. If anyone is interested, please email Mrs. Julian at grace@theedibleclassroom.org with March availability.

New form submission procedures:

Attention members: 

We want to remind you that we encourage everyone to work on their community service hours throughout the summer.  Senior year tends to be a very busy year and the more hours you complete over the summer the less you will have to do during the busy school year.  We have made a few adjustments to the procedures for submitting pre-approvals and verification forms.  Please follow the procedures as outlined below: 

Step 1: Submit a pre-approval form via the Google Form in our Google Classroom. This is time stamped and Mrs. Myers and I will review submissions periodically.  This must be completed before your event!
Step 2: Bring a verification form with you to your service activity and have it signed by the person supervising the activity.  
Step 3: Submit your verification form via the Google Form in our Google Classroom.  This is time stamped and must be submitted within 30 days of completion of your service activity.  

If you have any questions please reach out to Mrs. Myers and Mrs. Tejada.  

Have a well deserved summer break!
