Main Event - November 17th

We are very excited about our upcoming Main Event Music Department Social. Thank you to all of you that have signed up! We are looking for 3-4 parent chaperones to help out on this fun evening. We will need help with our check-in and check-out table and general supervision of the students. Chaperones will get in free and get the same awesome deal that the kids get! Please make sure you are cleared with the district to volunteer. Please email Mrs. Gearhart at Amy_Gearhart@lovejoyisd.net if you are able to help! We appreciate your help so much!
