Hernando school notes: Junior Achievement seeks volunteers

Class notes

Junior achievement: Junior Achievement is looking for volunteer role models to inspire eighth-grade students to stay in school.

A volunteer may be a business owner, professional, company employee, parent or community leader. All volunteers will be required to complete a registration form and background check before attending a training session. No experience is required.

Volunteers will attend a 90-minute training session provided by Junior Achievement and do a presentation to a class of students a week later. The training includes a review of the specific curriculum and activities provided, as well as suggestions for the most effective presentation of the material and teaching tips. Student character traits will also be reviewed.

On Diploma-see day, volunteers will present the Junior Achievement hands-on financial literacy material in teams from 8 a.m. to noon.

Volunteers work in the classroom to present the curriculum and share work and life experiences that reinforce the importance of staying in school.

For information, contact Kym McGee at (727) 424-8922 or kym.mcgee@ja.org. To volunteer, register by completing the JA of Tampa Bay 2013-14 volunteer biographical form at jatampabay.org.

Parent institutes: The Parent Institute for Westside Elementary, Deltona Elementary and Fox Chapel Middle School will be from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. Feb. 5 at Explorer K-8 School in Spring Hill.

The Parent Institute for Spring Hill Elementary, Pine Grove Elementary and West Hernando Middle School will be from 5:30 to 8 p.m. Feb. 11 at West Hernando Middle School, west of Brooksville. The event will include informative breakout sessions, dinner and door prizes.
