This is the last week before Staff Appreciation week and we are doing one last push to get things done. If you would like to come out and help out with some of the crafts, please join us on Monday, Tuesday and/or Wednesday at 1:00 on the gym stage.

We are still looking for more menu items for the staff appreciation luncheon for Wednesday, May 4th. If you are thinking of bringing something in, please sign up on our potluck form.  We also need some volunteers to help with the lunch.  Please sign up using our volunteer sign up form.
