What all IES staff members need to know on 2/5/16.

21st Century Furniture

I will be stopping by next week to see what step in the process you are at with your furniture order. The sooner we get y'all taken care of, the sooner we can move forward with PTA finalizing the money they will send back to the school.

Also, as you are adding furniture to the classroom, please take pictures and share them with me. I want to share them with our community so they can see their donations in action.
