Staff Appreciation Sandwich Bar at Feb. 27 Conferences
Site Council is organizing a "Make Your Own Sandwich Bar" for Horning teachers and staff during conferences on February 27. We’re inviting all our Horning families to help by donating sandwich makings - deli meats, veggies, cheese, chicken/tuna salads along with breads, croissants, and rolls, plus condiments and tasty side items like chips and dips, and of course yummy desserts! We will also need a few volunteers to set up and clean up.
