School tour guides

January 15 - March 12

Tour Tuesdays start up in January for MNPS schools. Dan Mills Elementary needs YOUR help to show prospective parents just how wonderful our school is! Please consider signing up to give a tour (or several!).

If you are nervous or worried about giving a school tour, no worries! The PTO will have a training video you can watch available soon and a one-sheet of information you can use during the tours.

FAST Testing Facilitators

January 14 - 17

Our literary coach, Ms. Greathouse, is in need of volunteers in January to help facilitate FAST testing. Please consider volunteering for a 2-hour slot or all day. We need 5 volunteers for each slot, so your help is much appreciated!

For those unsure about facilitating a test, there will be a tutorial provided on how to conduct the test.

Teacher Happy Cart

Once a month
Starting Tuesday, January 15

Once a month, we want to provide the teachers and staff with a little treat - Ugly Mugs coffee, baked goods and other snacks. Two volunteers are needed to roll the cart around the school building according to a set schedule. It’s a fun and easy way to be involved!

Volunteers are also needed each month to provide baked goods or treats for the happy cart (around 20 servings of cookies, muffins, brownies, etc.). The treats can be dropped off in the office by 8:10am on the chosen date.
