Let's Do Lunch!

We would love to offer our teachers a duty free lunch week during March, April, and May!


We need YOUR HELP to make this happen. So far we have 17 volunteers.


To cover one day of lunch duties, we need 9 people each day across 5 days unless our parents cover more than one lunch block in a day.


Please consider volunteering! We would love to have you visit campus!
