Volunteer Training--Thursday, May 12 at 8:15

Are you joining your child's class for a field trip in the next few weeks?  Remember that you need to have completed volunteer training with Mrs. Dorsey and have a current BCI on file.  

Volunteer training needs to be completed once during your child's career at LaPerche but BCI's need to be completed each year.  If you need a new BCI, you can download the form.  There is a link to the form on the right hand side of the school website.  Or you can stop in to school and see Mrs. Bazinet or email her at at sbazinet [at] smithfield-ps [dot] org and she will send you home the paperwork.  

Our next volunteer training will take place on Thursday, May 12 at 8:15 at LaPerche.  The training will take about 15 minutes. Thank you for volunteering!

Raymond C. LaPerche Elementary School is one of four elementary schools in the Smithfield Public School system. Our school is dedicated to Raymond C. LaPerche, a former teacher, principal and superintendent in the Smithfield Public Schools for 41 years. LaPerche first opened its doors in 1968 and presently serves students in kindergarten to grade five.
