Have a fantastic Spring Break & Easter, everyone!  Please note that I completely forgot to send home report cards today, but if you would like yours emailed home, just let me know (the formatting will be off, but the content will be there).  So sorry about that!
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!  It will also be completely flexible  around your time!  Please sign up if you can!  We would love to have more parents to be part of this process!  
Volunteer Sign-ups
