Health Room Volunteers Needed!
Calling all parents! We need daily help from 11:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. staffing the parent health room (located in the bookstore). You will be dealing with minor issues like band-aids and ice packs. No medical experience necessary! This will really help Nurse Maddie and alleviate some of the traffic through her clinic. If everyone takes a date, we will have no problem staffing for the whole year. Thank you so much!
Jump Rope for Heart was a huge success and the kids had a blast! Please send any outstanding donations (checks or cash) in ASAP that were not entered online to wrap up this awesome event. If you signed the $5 JAX pledge in the very beginning for your child, please make sure you enter that donation online or send it in the school next week!
