ADULT VOLUNTEERS NEEDED TO HELP SERVE LUNCH DURING MSP TESTING
This is your chance to get to learn more about Meridian Park’s food program and to do a good deed for the school!
Please consider helping Sandy and Geri, Meridian Park’s kitchen mavens, during MSP testing April 30-May 16. While students are testing, we need adults to help serve food during these lunch periods: 11:15-11:45, 11:50-12:20, and 12:25-12:50. Volunteer for as many lunches as you can! Not only will Sandy share secrets about Meridian Park corn dogs and chocolate cake, three volunteer names will be drawn to win $10 Starbucks gift cards (Your name will be entered into the drawing as many times as you volunteer)!
