Junior/Senior Parents - We are using the online program “Volunteer Spot” to ask you so volunteer for the Sloppy Joe Feed/Vendor Fair on Saturday December 5th. Please click the following link to sign up: http://vols.pt/FrNj4W. We are needing each Junior/Senior parent to provide dessert that will serve 12 and also volunteer to serve food, set up, or clean up that day. Desserts can be delivered to the kitchen on Saturday from 3:00 pm on or dropped off at the school office on Friday. As always we can’t have a successful event without your support and assistance. If you have any problems with the link contact Angie Huxtable at 308-380-7379 or email@example.com. She would be happy to assist. Thank you,
