Crew parents needed! As you may know our school is all about collaboration and following the age old saying “ It takes a village”.  If you are interested in partnering with your child’s crew teacher and essentially being a “room parent”, who will help coordinate the needs of the classroom by relaying info about any upcoming events, opportunities for volunteering (like the fall festival), organizing donations for classroom supplies, planning end of the year parties and so on, please let your crew teacher know. They would greatly appreciate the help!.
