Time Keepers

Volunteers are needed for the parent teacher conferences Thursday night. I need students to be time keepers outside each math classroom. You earn 2-3 service hours (depends on what time you start) for this. See Mrs. Taylor ASAP if you want to do this.

Bottle and Can drive

We will be having a Battle and Can drive on Saturday December 5th. This money will help us buy pies for pi day. If anyone works at a business where you can hang a flyer to advertise this please do so. Flyers will be available in a week. Members should also distribute flyers to their neighbors.
Next volunteers will be needed here at school on that Saturday. People will drop off their bottles and cans and we will have to sort them and count. we will be accepting donations from 9am to 11am. If you can volunteer for a one hour shift that would be wonderful.
