Do You Have Spirit?
We are looking for someone to head up our Spirit Nights! This person would be in charge of choosing the location and date for our monthly / bimonthly spirit nights! We have a list of locations that have been great to work with in the past but this person is also welcome to find new places that want to partner with our school if they choose!
If you are looking for a way to support our school PTA, this may be a great volunteer role for you! Please email firstname.lastname@example.org, our PTA President, if you are interested in learning more.

We're excited to welcome families back into the cafeteria as lunch volunteers!
