Apple Core Needs Volunteers!

Apple Core is a group of parents (and even grandparents!) who volunteer on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, or Thursdays to do work for the teachers in the workroom. This can be copying, laminating, stapling, putting up bulletin boards, cutting out shapes, and much more. Most volunteers work after morning drop off until about 9:30am. The amount of time spent is very flexible. This is a great committee to meet the teachers, see the work our kids are doing, and visit with other volunteers. It is a TREMENDOUS help to the teachers! Contact Stephanie Carroll for information.
