Winter Workshop is one of Rooftop’s favorite traditions! For three days, students gather in workshops to create unique, hand-made holiday gifts to give to those they love. This beloved tradition is possible due to the many people who volunteer to make it happen every year.

Thank you to our teachers and parents who have volunteered to lead the workshop activities. Now it’s very important that we find volunteer parents and caregivers who can assist our leaders and help the children create their one-of-a-kind gifts. It’s a feel-good way to start the holiday season and I hope you will join us!

The Winter Workshop dates and times are:

  • Burnett Campus (Grades 1-5): Tues, Weds, Thurs, December 3, 4 & 5
    • Volunteers are needed from 12:15 – 2 pm each day
  • Mayeda Campus (Grades 6-8): Tues, Weds, Thurs December 10, 11 & 12
    • Volunteers are need from 1:45 – 3:15 each day

Ideally, volunteers are available all three days of the workshop, but if you only have a day or two available, please volunteer anyway. We can use every bit of help and we want you to join in on the fun!

If you’re unable to come to school during the day, you can also contribute to the fun of the event by donating cookies or juice boxes for our “cookie party” (held on the last day of each campus’ workshop).

To sign up, please complete the attached form and return it to your child’s teacher or place it in the Winter Workshop box in the office on each campus. Or, you can email your availability directly to Amy Balsbaugh and Cheryl Ball at Please reply by Wednesday, November 20.

Mayeda Winter Workshop – Parent Permission Slip Needed

Since Mayeda Winter Workshop is a voluntary, after-school event, students wishing to participate will need to have the signed parent permission slip (attached below; hard copies available outside the art room) turned in by Monday, November 25th, when we will hold the workshop signups in the Art Room at lunchtime. To participate, students should be available to attend all three days of the workshop (please check with other after-school commitments like sports, clubs and tutoring prior to signing up). Completed forms can be turned in early to the Winter Workshop box in the school office, or brought the day of sign-ups directly to the art room
