∗ WE NEED YOUR HELP! – Please volunteer to help with the Penny Party. We need parents/grandparents to supervise the inflatables and help with the games. Parents can sign up for the entire day or for any time slot you are available. We also need volunteers to make treats for the sweet booth and cakes for the cakewalk. Remember, parents receive 1 service hour for any treat or cake donated. This is the Home and School Association’s biggest fundraiser. The money raised at the Penny Party is used to support our school, especially our teachers. . Volunteers will be needed to work the booths on the day of the Penny Party, and to “set up” before the party and to “tear down” afterwards. This event is attended by all students, Pre-K 3-high school. If you would like to volunteer, please fill out the slip below and return to school. This is a great way to earn your service hours! If you are a new parent at St. John, it is also a great way to get to know lots of other parents at our school. Any help that anyone can give is greatly appreciated.
