Parent Teacher Conferences: Tues 2/14 - Thurs 2/16
Our teachers put in long days during Parent Teacher Conferences so we like to provide meals for them! Whether you're a gourmet whiz in the kitchen or can pick up something "almost homemade," they appreciate your help. Show your love and sign up to bring an appetizer, salad, main dish or dessert!
We also need help setting up and cleaning up before and after conferences if you can spare 20 or 30 minutes before or after your conference. Please drop off food between 3:00 & 3:30 PM.
