Thank you to the parent/guardian volunteers who have already provided snacks for a Wednesday faculty/staff meetings. These meetings are an important time for faculty/staff to share information and collaborate; doing it with snacks makes it so much nicer.
There are a few spots coming up soon that need volunteers. Follow the link to our Sign Up Genius to volunteer for a day, then drop off your snack at the Admin Building any time during the school day. Thank you!
