Please contact Missi Vaughn via text message at 971-599-0656 or firstname.lastname@example.org to secure your volunteer slot.
We need at least one parent from each grade below to help coordinate projects . This is a great way to earn share hours and work on projects that are some of our highest bidding items! Once volunteers have been assigned I will work with each of you on ideas and looks to help get your project started.
Thank you! –Missi Vaughn

Lost and Found Table
If your child has lost it, chances are we have found it. The lost and found table will be set up by the school office December 4th. Please stop by and take a look for that missing jacket, polo, water bottle, etc.
Thank you to all who volunteered to help keep the uniform depot organized. We are on our way to getting all the donations hung up. Please keep us in mind when you purchase clothes and are asked if you would like to keep the hangers. We are especially in need of the hangers with the clips for hanging pants.
