P.A.W.S. = Parents Active With Students
At a small school like Endeavor, our parent volunteers are an essential part of our success.
Your support allows us to raise the bar in ways we otherwise could not!
Parents support our teachers on a daily basis by providing lunch/recess coverage. This service allows the teachers to take a one-hour lunch/planning period and perhaps most importantly, to refresh before the later half of the day. Parents also support our teachers by organizing special events, donating supplies, and much more.
Parents support our students by joining PAWS and by supporting our hot lunch program called Cafe Days. Membership fees and proceeds from Cafe Days orders are used to provide cultural arts events, field trip support, and classroom supplies. PAWS is also able to fulfill teachers' wish-lists with the funding support we receive throughout the year. Examples of such wish-list items include educational software, SMART Boards, iPads, new books, and art supplies; all of which enhance the classroom experience for Endeavor students.
Parents support our artistic growth by helping coordinate cultural arts events. They work with our Fine Arts team to research venues, collect props, sew costumes, paint scenery, share expertise, and coordinate performances and in-class events.
Parents support our facility by painting, building, and repairing furniture and walls. They install and adjust. They beautify our grounds and improve our play areas. They make sure our school is safe and beautiful inside and outside.
Parents support our potential by sharing the vision of Endeavor's core values and mission statement. They aspire to build our school community. They are informed participants in their children's education. They seek information when unsure and offer suggestions when their expertise offers insight. They promote Endeavor within the community, and pass along information about resources and opportunities.
