Q:  Will my child be with older students at any time?
A:  Other than during arrival and dismissal, Kindergarten students are not with older students during the day.  Their classrooms are in a separate area with their own recess area that is fenced in.  Occasionally, our 5th grade classes may "buddy" with a kindergarten student as part of their classroom experience.  This Buddy Class is a structured reading time that is supervised by both the Kindergarten and 5th grade teachers.

Q:  May I volunteer?
A:  Absolutely!  In fact, we ask that parents make a pledge to volunteer for at least three hours during the school year.  This can be done at parties/activities in the classroom, chaperoning field trips, working at school events, or even taking material home with you to organize and prepare for the teacher.  If you do volunteer during school hours, we ask that you sign-in at the office first so that LP Staff may greet you and give you a volunteer badge.  For more information about volunteering click on the volunteer tab on the main page of this website or email Vanessa Lentine Volunteer@HolaLasPalmas.org.
