Class Contacts

We still have three classes that are in desperate need of contacts. Please do not worry that it is a huge task, it is not. If your child is in 3BH, 4T, or 5J, please consider whether you could give a little bit of time so these classes are supported. All that is necessary is the occasional email to help recruit volunteers for school events. Let us know if you can help.
