We will meet once a month at lunch to discuss ideas for keeping the school healthy and offering suggestions for the breakfast and snack club, the lunch program and school sports and intra-murals. Talk to Mrs. Cole if you are interested.
This is a great opportunity to show leadership and help improve the school.
