Volunteer Shifts for Popcorn Friday

Click here to volunteer for Popcorn Friday:


As you may know, Popcorn Friday is one of Discovery Booster Club’s larger fundraisers, and it’s a favorite event in the Northridge Elementary community. In the 2016-2017 school year, we had 75% participation with 600+ students receiving freshly popped popcorn one Friday per month! DBC earned more than $2,700 through Popcorn Friday sales.

We need your help to continue Popcorn Fridays at Northridge this year.

While Popcorn Friday is a successful and fun fundraiser, it requires a significant effort to pop, bag and deliver over 600+ bags of fresh hot popcorn each month. Based on feedback from our experienced Discovery parents, Discovery Booster Club is asking every Discovery family to complete 2 Popcorn volunteer shifts this school year. Volunteers may include parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles and any other person close to you and your Discovery student.

There are about 100 students in the NRE Discovery program and we have 72 Popcorn Volunteer slots for the entire school year. If every family can complete 2 Popcorn Volunteer shifts, we will have more than enough volunteers to run this very profitable fundraiser.

Email Reminders will be sent to volunteers at least two days in advance. If you are unable make a shift, please find someone to take your shift. Popcorn Friday is a valuable and well-loved tradition at Northridge. It’s also a big fundraiser that helps to support our Discovery teachers and your Discovery students. Please help us support our Discovery program and donate your time to help make Popcorn Friday successful.

How to Volunteer for Northridge Discovery Classrooms

Discovery Booster Club is now accepting volunteer applications for the Discovery classrooms. Here at Northridge Discovery, the Discovery Booster Club has a dedicated volunteer coordinator who helps organize and assign parents to classroom volunteer positions. 

Click here to apply for a volunteer position today!

The classroom volunteer positions are regular, weekly commitments to help support the students and teachers. The room parent volunteer position helps to organize events for the classroom and the Discovery Booster Club, such as the Great American Spellcheck Fundraiser held in the early spring.

Most parents volunteer for their child's classrooms. The kids enjoy seeing their parents in the class and the teachers welcome the additional help in the class. Parents who can squeeze some volunteer time are also better prepared to help their children with homework. 

At Northridge Discovery, we also encourage parents to volunteer for other Discovery classrooms, especially math in the 5th and 6th grade classes. We are also looking for volunteers who have a passion or interest in science, social studies, reading and writing in these classes.

This year, we are using Signup Genius to organize class volunteer applications. Our volunteer coordinator does her best to place volunteers into their preferred time slots, but sometimes we have more volunteers than time slots. If you are willing to be more flexible, please indicate in the Notes field of the Volunteer Form that you are available any time or open to alternating every other week.

If you have any questions, please contact our volunteer coordinator, Catherine Archuleta.

Back-to-School Carnival: This Friday, August 18th!

Welcome back to Northridge, Discovery families! How was your first day of school?

Northridge Elementary is hosting the annual Back-to-School Carnival this coming Friday, August 18, 2017 from 5:00-7:00 p.m. The Carnival is a great way to visit and sign up for the various afterschool clubs and activities available through Northridge.

This year's carnival will also include fun activities and games for the kids, including an inflatable obstacle course, face painting, and the Littleton Fire and Rescue Truck. Food from the Hamburghini food truck and ice cream will also be available for sale.

The Northridge Discovery Booster Club will be selling popcorn at the Carnival. We need volunteers to help us sell popcorn and promote our fundraising programs, the King Soopers Grocery Card Program and the Kernel Club Program. If you are new to Northridge, this is a great way to meet other Northridge and Discovery parents!
