Parents and guardians we could use your help during orientation. If two or three parents working in shifts would agree to help keep the potluck table organized during the event it would be a great help to keep things moving. Then help return the cafeteria to its original state for school on Monday. Please use the SignUp.com button below and pick your spot.
