Monday Minute: Fall Workday, Hot Lunch, Spirit Wear, Volunteers needed and More!

Thank you to everyone that helped last week with the kick off of our Community Circle in Elementary and Explorations in the Middle School. There are always great volunteer opportunities at Exploris (as you will see in this Monday Minute- Food Pantry, Workdays, Panera Bread Program etc.) and our community is a better, more inclusive school because of all the hard work you put in.

Next weekend (Saturday, September 17) is our first Family Fall Workday of the school year! It will take place on the Elementary Campus (Middle School Family Workday will come later- the WHOLE Exploris community is invited to both events).

There are two shifts, 9am-12pm and 12pm-2pm with a pizza lunch provided. We will be working on many school improvement projects including: gardening, landscaping, decking repair, painting, etc. 

If you are able to bring ladders, wheelbarrows, power tools, rakes, shovels or a truck/trailer let us know with a comment when you sign up. The more people that show up, the more we can get done! If you can’t make it, but would like to lend a helping hand, we have a Wishlist of tools to make the jobs a bit easier!

The hot lunch program starts this week! Please note that you must have your order submitted by 12pm the day before the delivery.

Tuesday: Mama Crow’s: Owned and operated by one of our Exploris Families!

Friday: Pizza and Deli from downtown Demo’s
