IMPORTANT! Teacher Conference Meal > Sign up HERE
We need volunteers for this event! Our Wonderful teachers work hard throughout the school year and one of the ways we show them our support is by providing coffee, lunch and dinner for them during the extra long conference days. There are only a couple of opportunities throughout the year when they are able to sit down and have meals together. Our Hospitality Team coordinates the menu and donated goods for this event. Show your appreciation by signing up for one or more slots. Your efforts will be most appreciated. Questions? Contact Volunteer Coordinator, Lynne Thompson at LLCThompson@mac.com.

School Store Volunteers 2019-2020 > Sign up HERE
Come and work with the students for 20 minutes during lunch to oversee sales and check-out lines. Working at the the School Store is a great leadership tool; students learn to handle money, customer service, as well as the importance of showing up when scheduled and focusing on the task at hand. This is a valuable hands-on learning and an excellent way to volunteer.
