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; a few very dedicated newer parents are presently helping out but they need more support! (We do not want the few that are helping out to be burdened with all the work.) We will find simple roles for you to help for as little as 3 hours.
We are looking for a Parents' Club President and Vice President and lead roles for the fundraisers (Drive For Schools, Bingo, Art + Wine and others). Please contact Caitlin at email: email@example.com . Thank you!
