A Note to P.E. Volunteers

When you get things out of the P.E. closet, please be sure to put things away in an orderly manner. The closet was in disarray today for the parents who came in today to prepare for their turn. Let’s please be respectful of that space, understanding that we all need to be able to get in and clean up quickly, yet thoroughly. Thank you.
