Celebrating Our Volunteers!

volunteer collage Congratulations, and a hearty THANK YOU, to this year's nominees for volunteer of the year!
Update: Photos from the April 10 event are available here
Each year, we ask our principals to make the difficult decision to honor one person from their school to be recognized by the School Board. We also honor SMART (Start Making a Reader Today) volunteers, as well as one district-wide volunteer. The nominees will be recognized by the School Board (who are themselves volunteers!) on Monday, April 10, from 6:00 to 7:00 in the Board Room before tonight's board meeting. Friends and family are welcome to join us for cake and punch!
