School Workday this Saturday

School Workday this Saturday

Please join us for our workday this Saturday, January 20th, 9am-12pm. In order to keep our beloved school looking and functioning its best, it sometimes needs a little help from our parent community. We have jobs for all skill levels and interests. We will need people to maintain the various gardens and attend to various projects in the classrooms. There is no requirement to stay for the duration, so drop in for as much time as you have. Snacks and refreshments will be provided. The playground will be open as usual so the kids can play while you work. This event is sponsored by the Dad’s Club. Please contact Chris Coffee (ccoffee@gmail.com) for more information. »
