Looking for volunteers

We realized early on that the program wouldn’t be what it is without all the parents that step up to help. Thank you!! If anyone is interested and able to help on Mondays and Saturdays we’d really appreciate the help filling slots on our Parent Volunteer Signup Genius:  http://www.signupgenius.com/go/20f0944afa929a0f94-parent

If anyone is not on our parent volunteer distribution and you’d like to be, please send email to Dina and Susan (dearnott@yahoo.com; suru76@hotmail.com).  Thanks!
