Junior Achievement Volunteers Needed

Junior Achievement Volunteers Needed!

East York Elementary is in need of more volunteers to teach Junior Achievement classes this year! The classroom teacher provides support and discipline. JA provides all the necessary training, lesson plans, and engaging classroom materials - all you need is enthusiasm and a desire to make a difference!

The time commitment is five visits to the classroom and each session is 35-40 minutes in length. You choose your presentation days and times directly with the teacher.

Dress Code
Minimize

 East York Dress Code Reminder                      

Students are expected to exercise good judgment in the selection of appropriate clothing throughout the school year.  *If clothing is deemed inappropriate, the student will be asked to change into acceptable attire.  Dress code expectations are as follows:

  • Blouses, shirts, and dresses with spaghetti straps (with shoulder straps less than three inches 3” wide) must be covered with a top or jacket at all times during the school day 
  • Shorts/skirts need to be an appropriate length.  A good rule of thumb is mid-thigh length or past fingertip length.   Short skirts, short shorts or any display of undergarments are not permitted.
  • Muscle shirts, tops with enlarged arm holes, halter tops,  and bare midriff tops are not permitted.
  •  A student’s footwear needs to be suitable for gym and recess.  Sneakers are the best choice. Flip flops are permitted on non-gym days.

Thank you for your help in reinforcing the dress code expectations.
