If you are able to help, please come to the Art & Music rooms from 2:45-4:00 pm.  Children are welcome, and they can even help, so you can write a note for any school-aged children to stay after school on any day you are able to work.  You may want to bring your child a snack for after school.

We are also asking for donations of gallon Ziploc bags.  We will need one for every 1st grade student to keep each child's costume in one safe place.  If you are able to send in any with your child, it would be greatly appreciated!

If you are interested in helping or have any questions, you can contact Lindsey Pollack at
