Parent Council was created to give parents the opportunity to be a part of the Mountain Sun Community beyond the classroom their child(ren) are in. Below is a sign up sheet of opportunities for you to volunteer your time, and talents. Feel free to sign up based on your availability rather than by classroom. Should you have any questions about volunteer opportunities, please contact Racheal Duffy at firstname.lastname@example.org.
* Note: If you are signing up to be a driver, you must fill out the driver information form below and turn it into Susanne at the main office.
