We are still trying to fill some crucial roles for next year and we need your help. We are looking for an Arundel Chair for the Education Foundation. Please get in touch with me for more information and a job description. It is substantial role but a worthwhile, fun role which will really get you involve in the San Carlos school community. This role can be shared. Grab a friend and join us!
We also need an Arundel Spring Fling Coordinator. This is a role with some time commitment involved but again, such a fun thing to do. Please contact me for more information.

That’s right…we are looking for a few good minds to help lead our PTA efforts for next year. Our most pressing needs are:
VP Fundraising - Oversees fundraising efforts
Fun Run Captain - Oversees the Fun Run
Fun Run Carnival Captain - Manages and plans the carnival
5 of our 7 Fun Run team members will graduate in 2014 so we really need a strong group of fun parents to take this over for next year to get a feel for how it is organized and planned. All positions will have a mentor in place to train new volunteers. There are binders to help with logistics and How-Tos. Grab a friend and make it fun!
Hometown Days Parade and Booth – This role is for the event THIS year in May 2013. We have a lead person but we need helpers to coordinate our theme, organize and man the game booth, the volunteers and decorating for our walk in the parade..
All positions can be shared with a friend. All positions have training and mentoring available. All positions are fun, important to keeping Arundel’s programs in place and a wonderful way to be involved in your child’s school experience.
None of the positions require hours and hours of your life. Just a little each month.
Interested in learning more? Email me at KJSchnapp AT sbcglobal DOT net . Thanks for reading this and thinking about what you can do!
