Spring Auction Help Needed

Thanks to everyone who attended the kick-off Auction Meeting. It was nice to see so many new faces.  We are very excited for this year’s event. We have some great new ideas and will be making some BIG changes. However, in order to make this a spectacular party we still need more volunteers. Aside from collecting donations, we need parents to help with the following committees: Baskets; Raffle Sales; Data Entry; Solicitations; Communications; and Food. If you are interested in helping out, please contact the Auction Committee at or come to the next meeting on Thursday, November 12th at 8:45 AM in Room 133.

Safety Patrol -- New This Year

We are asking parents to volunteer a half hour one time during the school year to walk around the neighborhood at dismissal time. If you are interested in signing up, please email Alix Botwin Krell.
