Be an Understanding Our Differences Burr School grade coordinator!
We have four-five openings for grade level coordinators for the 2017-2018 school year. We need a couple of people per grades 3-5 to organize 2-3 units. The goal of this citywide program is to increase information, understanding, and acceptance of people with disabilities and individual differences in our community. It’s easy and very rewarding! Contact: Deanna Salemme: email@example.com or 617-877-7576 for more information.
Also, we’d like to thank the following volunteers who have helped run the first five units of the Understanding Our Differences program so far this year:
Anne Alvarado, Enkela Pance, Amanda Thompson, Rachel McCarthy, Christine Carey, Lisa Parker, Michael Grubb, Valerie Wastcoat, Colleen McIntyre, Valerie Miller, Anestis Pistofidis, Justine Fialkosky, Deborah Hill, Jen Sulewski, Ruchi Bhasin, Gina Quinn, Elise Person, Diana Gomberg and Kim Tulimieri. We couldn’t have done it without them!
If you haven’t volunteered, don’t fret! You still have plenty of opportunities.
