Rolling Ridge Tutoring - The parent liaison at Rolling Ridge has identified five families that are interested in tutoring for their children; there are actually three more families she hasn't heard back from as of yet. These sessions should take place at the public library or other public location, potentially between 4 - 6 pm. Suggested sessions of 30-60 minute sessions once or twice a week. More specifics such as grade levels, subjects, and the exact number of students are available once you contact Sue Bradley at Rolling Ridge Elementary School - firstname.lastname@example.org
Creek Clean-up in conjunction with the Sterling Foundation - April 29th (this is a change from the original Earth Day date of 4/22) Over 75 volunteers will be needed to clear paths to the creek/stream to remove garbage and debris.

Clear your calendars, if possible for the first-ever (recent) NHS group service project!
Here are some upcoming volunteer opportunities to share with your students from the Heritage Farm Museum in Sterling. Unfortunately, we have had several instances where volunteers signed up in advance and did not show up. Students need to be aware that if they "hold a space and do not show" they will be removed from the volunteer list.
Heritage Farm Museum: Kid's Night at the Museum; second Saturday of each month. 4:45pm to 9:30pm Volunteers are needed to help every Kid's Night at the Heritage Farm Museum located on the grounds of Claude Moore Park at 21668 Heritage Farm Lane in Sterling.

Ringing In Hope: A Salute to Our Troops event (a 5K/10K race and 1K Fun Run/Walk), is presented and hosted by One Loudoun, Miller & Smith, and RPAI, and will take place this Memorial Day (May 29) at One Loudoun in Ashburn, VA. This year’s event will benefit Boulder Crest Retreat. It’s the first privately funded non-profit wellness center for veterans and their families healing from combat-related stress. They provide free, world class, short-duration, high-impact retreats for combat veterans and their families.
The races kick off at 8 am and the Fun Run & Walk will begin at 9:30 am.
We are in need of volunteers (age 16 or older) who can assist with the event needs, including setup, tear down, family fun activities, course marshaling, water stations and so forth. It takes a huge amount of volunteers to put on an event of this magnitude, and we would greatly appreciate it if you could help us spread the words to your respective organizations. We are happy to provide a letter of service that can be counted toward service hours. The times of service are typically in three hour blocks (most beginning 6 am and ending at noon on race day).
