Uniform Sales Support – We need parent volunteers to help us accept custom order forms and payments for our uniforms.  We have over 580 students that we need to take orders for and can use all the support we can get to shorten wait times and ensure our parents are getting the right sizes.  Discount uniform shirts is something that will help all our families save lots of money, but it will be our last year offering this program if we don’t get enough volunteers.  If you are interested in assisting, please reach out to Ms. Brown – or Ms. Deokie –

June Community Showcase – We are planning a family event for June 2018 that will showcase our talents as a community. We are looking for all types of support, brainstorming to planning to executing the event!
