Talk to your Room Parent to sign-up and volunteer.

Each Room Parent is putting together a list of volunteers to staff games during the Fun Fair (see this Sign Up Genius post for event details and volunteer assistance needed beyond the classroom!).  We really appreciate parents helping make this event great! 

Please contact Matt Coatar, mattcoatar@gmail.com if you are interested in helping at any event or if you have any questions about how to get engaged!
