Teacher Helpers

The Teacher Helpers Leadership Crew is here to support all staff at SRE! Our goal is to help teachers with small tasks and to be their “go-to students” when they need a helping hand. Our most popular request from teachers is helping to keep classrooms organized and tidy by sharpening pencils, cleaning desks and counter tops, as well as picking up trash and materials! The most important part of our job is that we are sneaky and fast! We get right to work so we can help as many teachers as we can! WE LOVE OUR SRE TEACHERS!
