Term 3 Icy Pole roster

Term 3 Icy Pole roster

Every Thursday lunchtime at Hawthorn West Primary School icypoles are available for all students to purchase. The cost of icypoles is $1 each.
We require 4 parent volunteers each week to run the icypole sales due to the split lunchtimes this year. You can roster on once a year, once a term or as many times as you like. This is a fun, quick and easy way to get involved and help out. This year you can sign up online for the dates that suit. (Note: This is a change from previous years where parents volunteered and were then rostered on).
Volunteering involves:
– arriving approx. 15 minutes prior to lunchtime to set up (collect and sort icypoles from the freezer)
– selling icypoles for 20-30 minutes
– counting and bagging the money and submitting it to the school office
Location: HWPS – next to the BBQ
*** To volunteer, please go to: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/4090d48aca82daa8-icypole6
