SCHOOL SAFETY – I am looking for volunteers to make window shades for the classrooms. These can easily be done at home or in the school. We will be making them out of butcher paper, all we have to do is measure and cut them to the right size. I need 2 parents for the Jr. High and 2 parents for the Elementary School Building. Please email Kasey Grubb, Health and Safety POET board member, for more information/if you are able to volunteer
