  • AFTER SCHOOL ENRICHMENT PROGRAM: The After School Enrichment Program (ASEP) is an affordable, club-based program that gives Overlook students grades K-6 the opportunity to stay an extra hour after school to explore special interests or try something new. This year’s program runs five Wednesdays, 2/1-3/1 (make-up day in case of snow 3/8) from 3:25-4:30pm.  As we plan for the the 2016-2017 ASEP, we are in need of volunteers who make this wonderful program possible. Those interested in volunteering can contact pam@overlookvolunteers.com
  • AT-HOME VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITY:  BLINGO is looking for parents who want to volunteer, but need a flexible schedule (i.e. nights and weekend hours, lots of time some weeks/less time others). Parents needed to maintain donation spreadsheet, send out donation letters, and reach out to personal contacts.  Help needed anytime now thru March.  See the volunteer flyer for more details.  Email Pam at pam@overlookvolunteers.com to help.
