vendors; and then works with the Fundraising Representatives. We need several volunteers to collect/count money

cuts/scrapes and call parents to pick up children. The time commitment is simply what your schedule will allow. Sign-up
up in the health room or call the office to have your name added to the calendar. *Donations
of new under garments are always needed.

is acknowledged and greeted when entering the school, and to ensure proper check-in procedures. This committee
is reponsible for scheduling volunteer shifts throughout the day.

vision problems. We need volunteers to help with the screenings, which occur during two days in September. Bonnie
Chen is the lead contact for this volunteer opportunity.
