New!  Volunteer Spotlight ~ Looking for 1 or 2 Volunteers for Laminating Support

Looking for a way to help out our teachers and have a little time to donate each week?

* What is it?  Duffy is looking for one or two volunteers to assist for 1-2 hours a week doing laminating work for the teachers.

* Responsibilities?   Operate laminating machine. No prior skills necessary. 

* Timing? The day of the week is up to you but it must be consistent (so teachers have a consistent weekly deadline to submit projects).


Contact Diana Yorkavich or Shannon Pecorelli if you’re interested.
