Parent Volunteers

We will NOT be using volunteers next week in the classroom. You all get some extra time to yourselves. We will continue regular volunteer times starting Tuesday, January 26. If you alternate with someone, please be sure to connect with each other to avoid overlapping your days. If you volunteer for Art or PE, those classes will still use volunteers next week.
