    • Holiday Craft Night – We need a committee for the Craft Night, so far we have Jen Duarte and Stacey Bolduc.  We would love to have a few more… Hint, Hint     The holiday basket flyers will be going out this week as well.  We need as many volunteers to do a craft table.  We will be doing it like we did last year.  Second Floor will be K-2 and third floor will be 3 - 5 tables.  Anyone volunteering to do a table would have to come up with a cute craft and provide the materials for the children to go to your table and make it. So something quick and easy is ideal. Pinterest has some great ideas.  Separating the ages help with the amount needed.  Please contact Jen Duarte if you are interested.  
  • Old business
    • n/a
  • New business
    • The school needs some volunteers for this coming Friday. The school “Cookie and Soup Fundraiser” items will be delivered.  We need to cover from 12:30 - 4:00 pm in shifts.  Jen Duarte  can cover for a couple hours, but not the later shift.  If we can stagger a few volunteers, some can come early and some could stay later, that would work out perfectly.

    • Forms can be filled out/approved at meeting.  Extra forms are available.
