Pumpkin Palooza is Almost Here!!!

But, first... HELP! We need some more volunteers!

Help! The PTA's Pumpkin Palooza team is looking for additional volunteers. We need help with the following:

> Ticket Sales from 5:30 - 6:30 and 6:30 - 7:30. (PTA Board Members &/or Teachers Needed)

> Volunteer Check-In: This is an important location to keep the event running smoothly. We need help at all shifts from 3:30 - 7:30. We have two people signed up at 4:30 and one at 5:30, but the rest are unfilled! Yikes!

> SUCSESS Hot Dog Booth - We currently have student volunteers, but there are two shifts for adults (5:15 - 6:45 and 6:45 - 8:00) since we will be handling money. Both are empty. Yikes!

These positions are critical to the success of the event, so please consider volunteering for one of these There are other spots available, but these are the most crucial!

You can volunteer on and click on the volunteer link below. You do NOT need to register for an account at all...
