Saluting Dragon Shop Volunteers!
Last Tuesday many of the 48 Dragon Shop volunteers, who work about 900 hours during the school year, as well as HKIS CFO Ken Fowler and Dragon Shop Manager Albert Ott gathered for the Annual Volunteer Lunch. Dragon Shop volunteers are key to the Booster Club's mission of spreading Dragon Spirit, because the money generated through Dragon Shop sales goes back to the school in the form of Booster Club Allocations, travel kits for the traveling athletes and for the traveling competitve performing arts and academic teams. Dragon Shop sales also fund sports banquets, and Spirit Divisional events, such as Sno Cones, exam treats, popcorn at lunch, water and oranges at Field Days and Sports Day, and cupcake decorating. The Dragon Shop Volunteers also help spread Dragon Spirit in the simplest of ways and that's by being a welcoming face both for parents who visit the Shop and for the students who drop in for a free piece of candy. Volunteers currently come from three of the four school divisions, and we would like to see Lower Primary parents join us as well. If you are interested in volunteering next year (no prior experience is necessary), please email us.
