    Mrs. Eberhart and Mr. Navarro are pairing up for two carnival booths this year. Please look at the times below and sign up for any slots you would be willing to work. The games are very simple and and all you would have to do is collect tickets, explain the rules, and then reset the game for the next person. We will be able to set up the booth but may need some help from the first shift, and if you take the last shift hopefully you can help us bring items back to the classroom. Your children are able to work the booth with you and we encourage older siblings who may need service hours to work as well. Times are listed in 30 minute increments to allow more people the opportunity to help, but please consider signing up for 60 minutes.

    We are also looking for volunteers to assemble our baskets on Thursday and make them look presentable. They are due by the end of the day and you can come in any time before that to help.
