Science Kit Inventory

SciencePrincipal Davies is in need of 2-3 volunteers per grade level to inventory science kits. She will hold a training so the volunteers know how to do it (it is really straightforward) and then each group of grade volunteers would be responsible for doing the inventory three times a year. Some grades take longer/shorter than others, but it would take about 1-1.5 hours each time. We will not need the kindergarten volunteers this time around, but would love if they could come to the training so they know what to do for the next time. They could also help some of the other grades that have more inventorying to do. The dates/times for inventorying would probably be:  December 17th, April 1st and June 10th from 1:30-3:00 p.m. This would really help the teachers!


Thank you in advance for your willingness to help. Not only would you be helping the teachers, you would also get to know Principal Davies better.
