In Need of Cafeteria Assistance
Our students need help in the cafeteria with opening packages and helping to control noise levels.
  • If you could volunteer as little as an hour per week or an hour per month, it would be greatly appreciated by our students and teachers.  
  • If you can volunteer the entire lunch period that would be very helpful, but the greatest need is from 10:15 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.
  • Please sign up on My School Anywhere
