Phillips Lunch Pals


*** Calling all Kindergarten and 1st Grade Families *** 

Our wonderful Kindergarten and 1st Grade teachers could really use some help during lunch at Phillips.

The Lunch Pals program gives an opportunity to the Parents, Families and Friends to volunteer and help the teachers during lunch by taking care of your little ones.

As a Lunch Pal, you will have to walk around and assist our little friends with opening containers, inserting straws in the juice drinks/milk, handing spoons/forks/paper napkins, wiping small spill, etc.Your child will be so excited to see you helping other kids.

Grab a friend, another family member or come alone, but do try to come as even one parent per day is a big help.

A Lunch Pal Signup Genius has been created for the Kinder and 1st Grade families.

Every parent coming to help with school activities or volunteering for Phillips, has to complete the background check every year. Please complete your background check through the new FISD App Garden Volunteer Tracker, if you have not done yet for the 2017-18 school year.

Thanks for all your help and support !!
