We will pick 30 names out of a hat, and if that persons name is called, there's always a mad dash to choose the dessert of their choice!! Please list in the comments section what dessert you will be providing, also please list if there are any nuts in your dessert. If you'd like to include a copy of your recipe, that would be great! As always, thank you for helping us show our MVE teachers and staff how much we appreciate them!! Teacher Appreciation Chairs, Amy Jones & Maggie Domby

Mrs. Armstrong Needs You!
With the upcoming move to our beautiful new facility there are many tasks needing volunteer help in the Art Room until the end of the school year.
 
What volunteers will do:
There are many materials and resources that need sorting, cutting & purging before we can pack them, then packing and labeling boxes. I have a variety of materials for Goodwill for those of you with a vehicle. I have LOTS of fabric ideal for quilting if you or someone you know is a quilter.
 
When parent volunteers can help:
Parents who wish to volunteer during the school day are very welcome!  Please EMAIL me at least one day ahead of time so I can register you with the office. I will have packing tasks you can do while I am teaching classes.
 
Middle or high school student volunteers can help:
EMAIL me, letting me know what day the student would like to come and I will confirm with a personal reply. I can use help most days after school until 6pm with exceptions (Wednesdays in March). I am available as early as 3pm but I know most students are not available until 4pm and that is a great time to come in.

Thank you for considering this project!
