We are able to plan events and fund raise for our Farrand students and teachers because we have FANTASTIC volunteers that help out. Some parents are able to help out the day of the event - others are available behind the scenes working on projects before things happen. Either way - any and all help is always appreciated.
We don't know what next school year will look like - but anything is possible with volunteers!
We need a few Chairpersons for events listed below. Please email if you are interested in chairing, or have any questions on any of the events. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
We cannot continue to offer these events without the support of our wonderful Farrand community!
