Curriculum Lab Helpers

The Lab is located at the Huntington Beach District Office and it offers hundreds of quality supplemental materials for the classroom and students.  Volunteers are needed to go the the curriculum lab to prepare materials for special class projects, as required by the teacher.  


Curriculum Lab Parent Responsibilities:

  1. Contact the Teacher and let them know you are their Lab Parent.  Then contact them on a monthly basis and see if they have items that they need for the classroom.
  2. Look in the classroom and see if any items or materials are looking worn and falling apart. If so, ask the teacher if they can be replaced.
  3. If you need help, please contact your Curriculum Lab Helpers to assist in getting the request completed.  They are your support team!
  4. Important Note:  Please be mindful of when the Lab is closed, so you can make sure that all of your seasonal items are made on time!  For example, they are closed ALL of December.
