Vision and Hearing Volunteers Needed

Vision and Hearing Volunteers needed:


Fall Greetings:

I'm looking for volunteers for the Grand Meadow school's mass screening for Hearing and Vision. 

All volunteers are required to have a (annual) background check.

The $15-dollar background check fee is  paid for by the school district.  Background check applications are located on the school’s webpage under Quick Links for Parents. The forms need to be filled out and returned to your child’s classroom teacher. The process takes two to three days. The school will notify you when the process is complete. 

If you have questions pertaining to this process, please contact Mr. Paul Besel, Elementary Principal/Superintendent or Mr. Jake Schwarz


This will be held on Tuesday October 30th from 8:00 AM until 2:00 PM (approximate end time).  In prior years we've been getting done around 1:30 PM (or slightly after).

Volunteers should plan to arrive between 8:00 and 8:15.  Check in at the office that you enter near.
The screenings will take place in the library.

The grades that will be screened are:
1st, 2nd (Hearing Only), 3rd, 5th, 7th, and 10th
all others screened will be either new students or requests from teachers, parents or students.

We will try to accommodate the schedule so that you may be able to have lunch with one of your children.

If you're able and interested, please put this event on your calendar, and send your reply to:  or call: 507-754-5317, leave a message if I'm not available to answer the phone. Your help will be greatly appreciated.
