Is your student interested in who would be interested in interacting with the public and sharing their knowledge of natural history? Applications have just opened up for the 2017-2018 volunteer season. We provide training to help the students learn about natural history topics and how to interact with museum guests of all ages. Applications are due by March 1, 2017. Below is a little more information about the program to give you some background on our teen volunteer program.
The Fernbank Ultimate Naturalist (FUN) volunteer program, is an opportunity for youth to be directly involved in public events and education at Fernbank Museum. FUN volunteers run discovery carts, sharing information about biology, archaeology, paleontology, nanotechnology, and more with visitors of all ages. They also help with educational programming in the Naturalist Center, activities on special family event days, other special projects, and have opportunities to tour and visit behind the scenes.
The FUN program is a one-year commitment (June – May) and teens are required to volunteer at least 45 hours per year, which works out to be about once a month during the school year and twice a month in the summer. Volunteer ages range from 12 years old (must be 13 before Sept 1, 2017) to 17 years old. Volunteers age out of the program when they graduate high school or when they are 18 years old at the start of the next FUN year (June). The FUN program is very competitive, accepting applications once a year and interviewing and accepting a select number of applicants.
The PTA needs you for a short-term commitment! We need some volunteers for the PTA Nominating Committee which is responsible for talking with and evaluating candidates for next year’s officers and proposing a slate for election at the May meeting. You only have a limited amount of time? Then this is a the perfect opportunity for you! It’s only a few meetings between February and May – but such an important role to help us choose future Inman PTA leaders. Please email for more information.
Inman PTA has formed a subcommittee to discuss dissolving our Parent Teacher Association (PTA) to become a Parent Teacher Organization (PTO). If Inman PTA members have any questions or concerns regarding this or would like to be involved on the subcommittee, please send an email.
The Georgia History teachers of Inman Middle School are pleased to announce the 8th grade Savannah, Georgia Trip to be held on Wednesday, May 3, and Thursday, May 4, 2017. This is a two (2) day one (1) night approved trip by Inman Middle School and the Atlanta Public School System. The purpose of the field trip is to enhance the learning experience of 8th grade Georgia History students at Inman Middle. The students will be able to explore and obtain “hands on” experience in order to explain Georgia’s development by visiting authentic, historical sites. Their exposure to these sites will enhance their understanding of the importance of Georgia’s first settlement, Fort Jackson, First African Baptist Church, Andersonville National Prison, and Jimmy Carter Tour in Plains, Georgia.
