Teachers are ever-present to students in Prince William County Public Schools. From greeting students as they arrive and providing structured learning in the classroom, to monitoring hallways during class changes and ushering students to their electives, teachers appreciate a small amount of time to focus on other tasks. Parent volunteers at Pattie Elementary School are partnering with educators to change that daily reality and provide much-needed relief to teachers during lunch.
