Volunteers Needed

Parents if you are thinking about volunteering at school, your help would be greatly appreciated.  We have two opportunities for you to help our school.

1) Students crossing the street before and after school as well as pick up and drop off are always hectic. If you are willing to assist in this area, please let us know. 

2) Adult volunteers are needs to help with the green team.  Please contact Ms. Orbaugh if you are interested in helping.
