Volunteer Opportunities – 2019/2020 School Year

Bethlehem Walk Fundraising:  Our Bethlehem Walk Christmas production is almost entirely funded by Hope Lutheran Church and School, with generous volunteer support from our church membership and school parent community.  In an effort to offset production costs, a bake sale will take place starting at 2:15 at the PoCo Campus on Friday, December 6thCome by on your way to the middle school to get the best selection!  This is a great way for you to purchase a plate of assorted Christmas baking for holiday celebrations.  For those of you missing Fun Food, here’s your opportunity to enjoy some treats! Your time and your baked goods count towards volunteer hours.   

Also, The Well members will be selling their own baked treats to students at lunchtime – $1/piece.

To contribute items or to help facilitate the PoCo sale, please sign up at the following link:  Bethlehem Walk Bake Sale  Spaces still available for baking contributions – 1 hour for each dozen; if homemade, claim time to bake too.

The Well:  Our food services club, The Well, is in need of one parent a week to assist in the clean up each Friday after the meal service.  If you are able to spare an hour over the lunch period, they would greatly appreciate your assistance.
