Remember all your time shopping, cooking, setting up/cleaning up for events, decorating for events, etc all counts toward your volunteer hours.
The hospitality committee organizes many fun events which include monthly grade sponsored staff breakfasts, conference lunches, Staff Appreciation day in December and Staff Appreciation week in May.  We try to spoil the teachers and let them know how much we appreciate all they do for our children.
