Volunteer At Peter Kirk

Open Positions for 2015-2016 School Year

Grounds Beautification Chair:  Peter Kirk may be an old school, but there is a lot we can do to make it look better!

Now we need someone to lead the way by implementing this program, organizing a few clean-up days throughout the year, and managing volunteers. Our Grounds Beautification Chair will work with our school principal, custodians, District grounds leads, parents, teachers, and community volunteers to help Peter Kirk look its best and to keep us herbicide-free.  Contact:  Maureen Crabtree maureencrabtree@mac.com

Each marathon representative will be responsible for tallying weekly mileage run by students and distributing mileage Toe Tokens. Estimated time requirement is about 1-1.5 hr per week from Sep 28 – Nov.  17.  This is a great opportunity for working parents who want to get involved, since everything is done at home over the weekends.
