Week of December 4th, 2017

We need Field Trip Volunteers!

The 5th graders are going on a field trip to the McNay Art Museum on Thursday, December 21st. We need volunteers who are willing to meet us there, and follow a group of students on the tour. There will be a guide from the museum leading the group, but they need another adult to go with each group. If you have time, and are willing to help out, please make sure you have a current background check on file with the Seele office, and email Mrs. Ferrier or myself, mschluter@nbisd.org or yferrier@nbisd.org, to let us know if you can help out. We are taking volunteers on a first come, first serve, basis, as we only need about 5 to 6 volunteers. Our tour at McNay will begin at 11:30am and last about 30 to 40 minutes.
