The Intergenerational Program provides opportunities for CB55+ members and the school students to participate in activities of mutual interest.
Friday Intergenerational Activities
Now is your opportunity to volunteer for the Intergenerational Program coming up next month. On four Fridays volunteers meet with students from the school and enjoy forty minutes together over the lunch time recess from 11:10 to 11:50. Activities offered this spring will include cooking, board games, lego, knitting and beading. If you would be interested in volunteering for this delightful four-week program please contact Pat Ball at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Support a Reader
The program has successfully started its fourth year, although the labour dispute has been an issue. We have 19 volunteers working in 8 different classrooms, and another teacher has indicated an interest in having volunteers as well.
We work throughout the school year, once a week for half an hour. We read one on one, with either one student for the full time or two for 15 minutes each. Our job is to listen to them read, like a parent or grandparent would do, encouraging and supporting them and helping them as needed.
We can always use more volunteers so if you are interested, please contact Von Bishop at email@example.com.
IG Photography, coordinated by Brent Carberry.
We are still hoping we will be able to offer the photography program to the 3 classes of Grades 4 & 5 starting in January and ending with the 3rd group at the beginning of June. We will need at least 6 volunteers from our members for each of these classes. If you would like to work with four students during the five weeks from one of these programs please contact Patricia Houston at:firstname.lastname@example.org You do not need to know photography, there will be 2 teaching instructors in each class but you may come away with improved skills.
Pickleball for Cordova Bay Elementary Students –
I am now seeking volunteers for Tuesday mornings, from 11:15 – 11:45 am., starting on April 9th and ending in mid-June. These sessions will be available only to those students who have taken our Introductory training. There would be a teacher present during these sessions and we would merely be supervising the games by helping to keep score and giving feedback on technique where needed. Some time in setting up nets and equipment would be required as well as putting away equipment at the end. We will train the students on these tasks so they can help.
