End of year pack up - Here's how you can help.
Our principals and teachers could use some helping hands to get QAE classrooms in ship-shape ready for next September. Volunteers are needed to help with organizing, sorting and boxing up supplies. This work will take place in empty rooms during the school day, and needs to be completed by June 17th. If you can offer a few hours of your time over the next few weeks, please email our volunteer coordinator, Jeanine MacQuarrie, at email@example.com. Indicating your general availability will be helpful. Preschoolers are welcome!

There are three ways to contribute:
Field Day 2022!
An end of year day full of fun for our students. We need you to join in the fun too! Please consider being part of the planning team! Tentative Dates are set for Monday, June 13 or June 16th (last week of school). As Co-Chair you will help support the overall flow and details of the day, purchasing items as needed and communicate with volunteers.

Explore School Parent Leadership - Nomination Committee
The PTSA will have open positions on next year's board and are currently forming a Nomination Committee that will help to fill these positions.
The goal of the committee is to lead the process in matching people with open positions. One could say they are the match makers in this love story.
You do not need to be on the board to participate in this committee. The committee needs to be in place as soon as possible in order to fill as many of the essential volunteer rolls as possible. A few positions that have already been identified are Board President, Secretary, Fundraising Lead, Co-Treasurer.
We'd really like your help in identifying people who might be interested in serving on the PTSA, and we'd also like to invite any of you who are interested in serving on the nominating committee to please let us know by May 20th.
If you are interested, have any leads for us or just have general questions please email Sarah Kaiser at firstname.lastname@example.org
