Happy, Happy, Happy New Year!
As 2020 came to an end, Covid-19 did not. 2021 brings with it some big possibilities and a great deal of hope as we continue to support our students, teachers, and the CHCCS community.
Since the end of March last year, the primary focus for this department remains in the following two areas:
- Food for Students (FFS)
- Virtual Tutors
Food for Students
The FFS program, with the help of hundreds of community volunteers, has distributed more than 900,000 meals to many of our students in the district. Without the help of volunteers and staff, we would not have been able to feed children while the school buildings were closed. Our volunteers have been instrumental in the success of the food program, and our plan is to continue the same process until we all return back to the schools. For now, the food sites are being covered, but as needs change or new events are planned, we may reach back out to the community for volunteer assistance.
The Virtual Volunteer Tutoring Program is a new addition to the Volunteer Department. While volunteers are still unable to meet with students or go inside the schools, they can sign up to be a virtual tutor. The process is as follows:
- Teachers create a request for Virtual Volunteer tutors.
- Volunteers can review the tutor needs and then register as a Virtual Tutor based on the teachers' requests.
Please take a few minutes to review our website and follow the process to be a CHCCS Virtual Volunteer.
We look forward to working with each of you, and thank you for your willingness to serve the CHCCS community.
If you have any questions, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please be safe and healthy.
