What I Am Reading this Week

Parent Volunteers and Field Trips

Just a reminder that any parents who would like to attend field trips with their child or volunteer in their child's classroom must complete a volunteer application prior to volunteering. Please click this LINK and apply today if you did not complete a volunteer application when you did Registar this summer.
