Traffic Safety Volunteers Needed

crossing-pedestrianNixon Needs Traffic Safety Volunteers to Keep Children Safe and Drop-Off Smooth

We have had a substantially retracted but dedicated set of traffic safety volunteers for over a year. We have not been able to optimally cover the front and back crosswalks. Ideally we need 2 volunteers on Stanford Ave and 1-2 on Tolman each morningbut we typically have only one on each side and some days are left unattended. Our traffic volunteers are a big reason drop off is safe and smooth and the traffic on Stanford and Tolman is manageable, so please consider this a serious plea for new parents to come forth. Volunteers can share duties that consist of arriving at school around 7:45-50, helping families safely use the crosswalks, and helping automobiles efficiently enter the drop off zone until about 8:00-8:05. This is a flexible position, and requires as little commitment as one morning a week for these 15-20 minutes. It’s a great way to give back to your community, and you get to wear the cool orange vests! Please contact Tim Assimes if you are interested.

Chalk it up!

Mark your calendars. Nixon’s first Chalk It Up! event is coming next school year on Friday, August 22, 2014. Students with their families will have the opportunity to design a square on the school walkway.

Come and be a part of this creative after school activity! At the same time you get a chance to welcome and meet new families to Nixon, as well as to catch up with our Nixon community after a long summer break.

The PTA will provide high quality chalks and our 5th graders will have refreshments available.


Interested volunteers please send us an email.
