Addams Elementary - Saturday Sports
What do you get when you combine 100 elementary kids, silly games, sports, crafts and a Bible lesson? Saturday Sports at Addam's Elementary school. Join us every Saturday from 9 to 11am for Saturday Sports. This exciting ministry happens every Saturday during the school year. It's a total blast and an easy way to serve the community. Come on out and play basketball, soccer, baseball and silly games with kids of all ages. It's a fun and safe environment for the neighborhood kids and a great opportunity to share the love of Jesus. Come check it out!
Email Diane Falge with any questions or call her at 559-260-3242. Remember, you don't have to commit to every Saturday just come on out and give it a try.
Addams Elementary - Classroom Volunteer
We have an immediate need for Kindergarten volunteers.
Teachers at Addams do not have aides and parent participation does not meet the needs there. You pick the grade, the day, and the time. You'll find a grateful teacher and a classroom of children that will thrive on the extra TLC.
- Bless teachers and staff at Addams with notes of encouragement
- Surprise teachers and staff with lunch or coffee & goodies
- Work Projects such as neighborhood clean-ups, simple home repairs and yard work assistance
Email Diane Falge with any questions or call her at 559-260-3242.
