CLASSROOM & DAYCARE HELP NEEDED
Are you looking for a part-time job for one day or maybe two or three a week, sometimes? Do you enjoy working with children? Are you available from 8:30 am – 3:30 pm on a school day? We are looking for parents who can help be substitute teachers in our classrooms at Innocademy. When they are out, teachers leave a detailed schedule and lesson plans for a substitute to follow, easily, so students can continue their learning.
We also have an opening for someone to help in our staff daycare, if you’d rather work with young children from 3 months – 4 years old, instead. If you would like to learn more about either one of these positions, please reach out to Jessenia.firstname.lastname@example.org.
COUNSELING INFORMATION FROM MS. LAURA
It is scheduling time! One of my favorite parts of the year because I get to meet individually with students to have a look at credits earned this year, and what next year’s courses will look like. In these meetings, we discuss interests, post-secondary plans, and the classes/opportunities we can weave into your schedule that will be best for you. Please make an appointment here.
Thinking of opportunities, this week in seminar I shared some spring and summer job and learning opportunities available to students. These are just a drop in the bucket – there are many more out there! I encourage you to check these out as a family.
