Make some time for her -Come by for some food, drinks, ice cream and to thank and celebrate, Juliana!!


4. Graduation Parent Volunteers needed:

The tradition at Exploris is for 6th and 7th grade parents to manage the reception portion of 8th grade graduation so 8th grade parents get to enjoy the celebration with their student.  We need 5-7 volunteers for the morning of June 7 at Christ Episcopal Church. Please contact parent coordinator, Pamela Lietz, at pamela.lietz@gmail.com for more details.
