537Page-for-a-Day at Tree-Girt-Sea Twelfth Night
- Dec 4, 2006There will be a Youth Pointe at Tree-Girt-Sea's Twelfth Night on
January 13th. We will be running the Page-for-a-Day program.
Students already enrolled in the Page School can come and get some
service hours for their Page School requirements. Children who are
not enrolled in the Page School can just sign up to help out.
We need 2 things in order to make our Page Pointe a success. We need
age-appropriate jobs for kids at all age levels (5-18 years), and
kids who are willing to sign up to help.
If you are coming to Kingdom Twelfth Night and have jobs that kids
can do--and this can be anything from helping merchants carry things
in and set up, to helping class teachers set up or clean up their
rooms, to assisting with the parts of our day-long feast, please let
us know. Even members of the populace can employ kids to help carry
things in and get set up. We can put you on the list of employers
and get you set up with a Page. You do not need to have a day-long
job. Even a task that you need help with for an hour so is great
too. Please check with Page Pointe near troll to sign up as an
If you are coming to Twelfth Night with a youth (ages 5-18) who is
either already enrolled in the Page School program or who is just
interested in helping out, please come find us at Page Pointe--near
troll. We can get your child hooked up with people who need their
help. The kids can work as much or as little as they want--if they
want to work for an hour washing dishes in the kitchen and that's
all, that's fine; if they want to work all day with one person
that's fine, if they want to work a variety of jobs for a variety of
people we will do what we can to get them hooked up.
Youth DO NOT need to be enrolled in the Page School in order to
participate. They can sign up for the Page School at the event, or
they can just help out and not worry about the paperwork. If they
are signed up for the Page School they will receive Service Hours
credit for their work.
Some things to consider about Page Pointe at Twelfth Night:
--Page Pointe is not babysitting. We are not babysitting your child.
Employers are not babysitting your child. Parents need to be
involved with their children's employment, to the degree which is
appropriate for their age level (in other words if our autocrat
would like your 5-year-old to help distribute items for the gift-
game, you may need to accompany them as well; whereas if your 16-
year-old is employed washing dishes in the kitchen you may not be as
--Please don't force your child to participate. They should be
expressing some interest in helping out in some way.
--Please consider your child's ability to handle being with another
person for some period of time, taking direction from someone other
than their parent, etc. If your child has separation anxiety issues
or a short attention span you as a parent may need to be more
--The children should actually be the ones doing the work. Don't let
your child sign up to do a job and then take over the job yourself.
We will do our best to make sure the kids have safe, fun, productive
work. It's our responsibility to make sure everyone is playing by
the rules, though any help with that would be appreciated. Also, if
you would like to help run Page Pointe we would be happy to have
help. Check in with Lady Evzenie or Lord Dietrich when you get to
