Tomorrow is the day.... LAWN PARTY!!!!!

Thank you to everyone who signed up to volunteer for Lawn Party on Saturday, May 21, 2016. Here is some important information you will need!
With over 200 volunteers working over the course of the weekend we are not able to contact each person to confirm. Please plan to arrive for the shift you indicated on your rsvp. If you forgot what time you signed up for please email as soon as possible. We will do our best to reply in a timely manner. Once the event starts we may not be able to response to messages.

Volunteers should check in at the Volunteer Registration table at the front door of JA 15 minutes before the start of your shift to receive your shift assignment. We also welcome walk-on volunteers. There will be a list of open positions for each shift at the registration table.

Most assignments are outdoor assignments. Please wear sunscreen and a hat. You are encouraged to bring your own bottled water or there is water available for sale in the cafeteria. 

Baked goods and cakes should be delivered to the school throughout the day Friday or before 10am Saturday morning.

Most importantly, come enjoy the event with the good feeling that you are supporting your child’s educational opportunities.
