This mom will mostly need to hang out in the coffee shop downstairs.  Since students will be allowed to come downstairs to purchase from the vending machines and the coffee shop, we need a mom to keep an eye on this area and encourage students to head back upstairs after they have made their purchases.  We also ask that this mom take occasional walks through the halls and the commons area outside the worship center for wandering students.  You are welcome to have your younger kids with you.

This mom will sit upstairs outside the double doors that lead into our classroom wing.  Your responsibility is to be an extra set of eyes monitoring students and adults as they come and go.  You will have a picture roster of CHAT and eCHAT students to refer to as needed.   During the last 15 minutes (starting at 2:15 or so), we ask that this mom wash the table tops in all empty rooms in the classroom wing and straighten the chairs as needed.  You are welcome to have your other kids with you and do school or another quiet activity with them as you sit, and they can come with you as you straighten rooms.  Maybe they could straighten chairs as you wash tables!
