Dear 5th grade Parents: 

We have two very fun events planned that will not happen without your help! The Town Pool Party and the Crestview Party. We need minimum 12 drivers (this is assuming people have big cars). Please sign up below. You need to be finger printed and fill out the new Volunteer Driving Form (see Volunteer Forms & Fingerprinting and Volunteer Driver Forms.) The new form takes 2 minutes to fill out and 2 minutes to hand in or email to Alicia Downey. You need to give her a copy of your license and insurance declaration with the paperwork. The lead time is 3-4 weeks so we need sign ups and forms handed in ASAP. I know everyone is short on time but please do this for the sake of the 5th grade class who is finally able to go back to “normal” after 2 years.


Here's the link to volunteer:
