     Suggested Ways to Help

    Before the Walk Through:

    1. Create Nametags for students
    2. Organize a collection of fabric and craft supplies for costumes
    3. Help make student costumes

    8. Help with Room Set-Up or give the diagram to a school staff member
    9. Organize a themed “Walk Through Lunch” to take place before the afternoon presentation
    10. If your school has a busy parking lot, it’s nice to arrange for a reserved space for the presenter
