Thank you to all parents and guardians that have volunteered to chaperone! I wish I could have everyone come, but we only needed two chaperones this trip. Therefore we will be accompanied by the two volunteers that signed up first- Mrs. Poonam Shailendra and Mrs. Abigail Gross. Thank you for all of your support!
