What's New This Week

Looking For A Creative Volunteer 

We are hoping to find someone who is creative and good with visual projects.  The school would like to create a wall, for our community to see and reference, of all of our full staff, pictures, names, and jobs.  We have an interested staff member who will be a point person as well and would love to find a parent volunteer who has an interest in this. Please contact if you are interested.
