Teacher Appreciation Committee

Volunteers Needed!

The Teacher Appreciation Committee is looking for volunteers to donate food for the teacher appreciation luncheons that are held on throughout the year.

We will send out an email with food items that are requested before each event and you can choose what donations you would like to provide. Typically, the food can either be dropped off at school the morning of the lunch or at a designated house the evening before the event. Typical food requests include salads, soups, pastas, desserts, breads, etc.This is a great way to show your appreciation for our wonderful Northgate teachers.

Please sign up to help by sending an email with your name and phone number and we will add you to the volunteer list.

Thank you
Deidre Rubcich, Melissa Sunbury & Cindy Lentz

The job involves taking out the trash, mopping and vacuuming floors, etc. Teardown will take place on Saturday, June 13th for approximately 4 hours in the morning. The job involves transporting supplies back to the storage unit at Northgate. Please let us know if you are interested in either of these jobs. Thanks for your consideration.
