Can you pitch in? As you may have read in the New York Times, our teachers diligently raise money themselves for everything from hand sanitizer to soundproofing materials. And they pay out of pocket for more than we know. Any assistance you can offer is much appreciated!

Of course, any time you can spare volunteering for the PTA’s various committees, shelving books in the library, chaperoning field trips, working with the Wellness committee to improve school food or helping out in the classroom is very much appreciated. Thanks so much!
