As an assistant you will be responsible to help with snack time, check attendance, assist the teaching artist with distributing supplies, assist students, and coordinate parent pickup at the end of class. To sign up as an assistant in the class please contact Darlene Gormly by email:  dgormly2010@gmail.com.  Once Darlene has verified BCI checks, you will be able to register your child on CourseStorm using a discount code.
