Room Parent?

We are still searching for a Room Parent for this school year. Duties include helping to ask for supplies/food for class events (total of 4 this year) and organizing who can come in to volunteer at those events. If you have questions please let me know. I'm hoping for 1-2 parents to assist with this job this year. Please let me know if you would be able to help out with this! Emily
