Pay It Forward…5th-Grade Continuation

Dear Kdg – 4th-grade Sagebrush Parents,
The 5th Grade Continuation is fast approaching!  In past years, we have asked Kdg – 4th-grade parents to help with this special event.  We will need several parents to help set up the morning of the event and then parents to help clean up afterward.  5th-grade parents are planning the event and providing all materials, but would really appreciate help with the setup and clean up to allow us to spend time with our children on that day.  The event will be held on May 24 from 9:30-11:00.  Please sign up to help with either set up starting around 8:00 am or clean up after 11:00 am.
