We hope everyone enjoyed their summer! The Bellmore and Merrick Street Fairs are right around the corner and we need your help to ensure that we have sufficient coverage to run both events successfully. The Bellmore and Merrick Street Fairs are important events in our community. Both fairs are early this year and we would appreciate it if faculty and staff members would consider volunteering 1-2 hours of their time.
The Merrick Street Fair:
• Saturday, September 10th and Sunday, September 11th
• Volunteers should report to the BMCHSD table/tent located in front of RS Jones Restaurant
The Bellmore Street Fair:
• Saturday, September 17th and Sunday, September 18th
• Volunteers should report to the BMCHSD table/tent located in the LIRR parking lot near the corner of Bellmore Ave and Sunrise Hwy
We could use 1 or 2 teacher volunteers for each time slot. Below is a link to our Google spreadsheet to view what time slots need to be filled by teacher volunteers.
Those interested in volunteering 1-2 hours of their time should email Jessica Chilton at firstname.lastname@example.org with the time slots they are interested in filling. An email will be sent to each teacher volunteer giving them specific directions on what they need to do to help out on their assigned day!
Attention Art Club and Honor Society Advisors:
In the past you have done a wonderful job setting up student volunteers, we would appreciate the help- please email us with any questions and concerns. Your students' talents are always a welcomed addition.
We ask that teachers please make announcements in their classrooms including the event details. Students should volunteer for a minimum of two hours. They will be expected to assist the children with some simple and fun crafts. Children who attend the festivals especially enjoy the face painting. Teachers may e-mail us the names, dates, and times students plan to attend. Students will be required to sign in with Ms. Azzara or Mrs. Chilton and we will inform teachers of student participation. (This is a great opportunity for students to earn community service!)
Thank you again for your help and we hope you enjoy the rest of your summer!
