UPCOMING VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES AT MVES
👟 Georgia Walk to School Day - 3/11  We are looking forward to our Georgia Walk to School Day on March 11th. We could really use your help with set up and with greeting the families as they arrive. We specifically need help setting up the cones the day before the event so if you are able to help with that, we would greatly appreciate it. We also need volunteer parents along the way to make sure our families are being safe and staying on the sidewalks. Please click the button below and see where you are able to help out. Click HERE to Sign Up.  -PTA Health and Wellness Committee
