This is what happens when Open School yet again shows up!  What a great time, huh?  Like all successful events, this is only because of the hard work and generosity of so many parent volunteers.  Not only did we have 60 people signed up to help, but then even more parents would stroll up to the kitchen and offer to put on an apron and help.  When an event gets that kind of support, it’s a certain success.

By putting them on all of your kids' clothing and lunch box items, you will be able to find anything that has been left behind. 
20% of the proceeds will go to Open School, so check it out!
