8th Grade Events - Volunteers Needed

Volunteers are needed to help celebrate year-end activities for our wonderful 8th Graders.

  • There will be a fun DJ-hosted dance, photo booth and concessions on Friday, June 9, and we need creative or simply enthusiastic parent volunteers to assist with the planning, setup and chaperoning of the dance. Volunteer at the 8th Grade Dance.
  • We also need some 6th and 7th grade parent volunteers to help set up and host the 8th grade family reception following the recognition ceremony on the last day of school. Volunteer at the 8th Grade Family Reception.

These events could not happen without your support. Thanks in advance for the help! Please contact Heidi Zimmer with any questions.
