Concession Sales

Chairs are needed to manage the purchasing and staffing of the concession stands. Concession volunteers are also needed to oversee concessions sales during specific sporting events throughout the school year working with team parents. This is a great way to volunteer if your child is participating in a sport. The volunteers are coordinated by the Parent Association.
