Game Day Volunteers Needed

Game Day is this Friday and we need some parent volunteers to help distribute fruit and water to the children. There will be 2 shifts, 8:30 - 11:00 am (K - 3) and 12:35 - 3:00 pm (4 - 6). You might want to choose the one your child isn't in. If you are already volunteering to help with a class, choose the opposite time since it's hard to be in two places at once! Before you come up the hill, you must sign in and get a name tag at the front office. As always, all volunteers must have their clearances. See you up on the hill for this great day! 

Please sign up here
