After School Art Club – Do you enjoy helping kids explore art? Don’t mind getting messy with paint, clay and glue? Want to make a difference in the lives of children who otherwise would be home alone or in the care of siblings? Lend a hand at our After School Art Club for children at our adopted school, South Lake Elementary School in Montgomery Village, on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons (3:30 pm – 5:00 pm). We have the curriculum and the supplies; we’re looking for adults and students (HS & MS) to help staff the club. SSL hours are available. B’nai Mitzvah students are welcome! It is not required that you volunteer at every session, nor that you have previous art experience. For more information, contact Sue Fox.
Chess Club Enrichment Program – A TBA congregant and her high school age son have volunteered to run and support an after school chess club one day a week. The family donated all supplies including chess set, boards, and other teaching supplies.
Mommy and Me Parenting Program – This program was conceived by the Community of Action and is run entirely by Temple Beth Ami volunteers one morning a week during the school year.
Adult English Classes – For the past two years, Beth Ami congregants serve as assistants two mornings a week in ESL classes taught at South Lake for South Lake parents.
Lunch Time Reading Volunteers – For the past three years, Beth Ami volunteers have come in at lunchtime to read with South Lake students under the direction of the reading specialist at South Lake.
To volunteer or if you have an idea for a new enrichment program, please contact Sue Fox.
