Volunteers Needed for Hot Lunch: March-May 2011
We are in need of volunteers to assist with Hot Lunch on Tuesdays and Thursdays! Please come and try it out. It is a fabulous opportunity to be involved in the school on a small level, but one that means so much to the kids. All the kids LOVE to see their dads and moms when they come through the hot lunch line! You can pick and choose the dates that work for your schedule. Volunteers are needed in the McKay center from 11-1. However, if you can only make it from 11:30-1:00, just let us know as your volunteer time is wanted and appreciated, so we make the shorter hours work for a few volunteers who leave work on a long lunch to help!
Sign-up forms were sent out with the children last week. If you would like your child to participate in the International Talent Show, please contact Lilly ASAP at firstname.lastname@example.org Please turn in the Food Fair form by Thursday, February 17.
