Calling all active MV BEARS!

It was suggested that we all pitch in to make a physical Calendar/Info Board in the Atrium for the students, so that they know when and where to get involved. Right now, much of what we do depends on whether teachers read emails - and then remember to share info with students - or if students take the initiative to check the school website or calendar. Let's collaborate to get them in the know - and participating at events!

Please make a "How to Input info" suggestion in the comments below...

Volunteer your club or org or class to help make this a reality by offering to sign up for a month of Bulletin Board duty.
