I’m looking forward to seeing those job applications tomorrow for our new classroom jobs! Have a great day, and thanks for checking the blog!  Also, thanks again to all those who donated playdo!  We discovered we needed more power to make it work, so we’ll try it again tomorrow!  🙂
For those parents who have wondered how involved being an Exhibition mentor will be, please be assured that you do not need to be an expert, and it would only be about once a week.  Since there will be around 55 groups, the main role of a mentor will be to help your group stay organized!  Please sign up if you can!  We would love to have more parents to be part of this process!

Finally, remember to ask your parents or older siblings who have Facebook accounts to vote for Brooklyn’s older sister’s Zion’s Bank video once a day until March 31st!  Not only will she get a scholarship if she wins, but Providence Hall will earn a money prize as well!  Steps:
