Sherwood Education Foundation – Calling for Kids volunteer request

SEF will be holding its annual Calling for Kids event in November this year (Nov. 5,6). We are doing this over just 2 nights this year. This will be our 5th year having the middle and high school students doing the calling. This has worked very well for us. Its a great way for the students to gain volunteer hours and give back to you their teachers, and it is fun for us to be able to work directly with the students.
There is also a link below to a calling script that we have used in the past. More information can be found on our webpage: sherwoodeducationfoundation.org.
Please also forward this to any other teachers having students needing volunteer hours or who may want to help. I am trying to cover leadership, national honor society, clubs, band, choir, etc.
Let me know if you have any questions and thanks for your time and all that you do for our students. Its a highlight of the year for us to work with your kids.
Thanks,
Mike Hiland
