We are looking for a volunteer to "shadow" the Sunshine Times external operations during the 21-22 school year and then to take over these operations during the 22-23 school year. This role is currently held by the parent of a sixth grader.
The Sunshine Times is a newspaper published in the late winter and mid-spring to highlight student writing and artwork. Currently, two PTA parents work together to publish the newspaper. The operation is broken into two components:
- external operations — advertising the dates for student submissions, collecting and organizing the entries, writing students thank you notes, and distributing the newspaper to students and teachers
- design and publication — graphic design/newspaper layout and printing.
LAES is extremely lucky that our graphic designer will be staying on for the next few years.
Please let us know if you are interested in shadowing the external operations position. Time commitment is minimal; about 3 to 5 hours per publication.
