You are Needed!
This year is a transitional year for Parents' Club because many parents who are active in Parents' Club have children leaving next year for Middle School. We would like to meet more new parents at our meetings. Thank you to the new parents who have stepped up - we would like to to spread out the work so that they feel supported, not overwhelmed. We will find simple roles for you to help for as little as 3 hours.
We are looking for lead roles for the fundraisers (Drive For Schools, Bingo, Art + Wine and others). Please contact Caitlin at email: firstname.lastname@example.org . Thank you!
