Vision and Hearing Volunteers Needed!
Nov 19th
Monday, Nov. 19 is Vision and Hearing day at IMS. We need a crew of 20 parents to help us check only the 7th grade student’s vision and hearing. It’s only a 3 hour commitment, 7:30 to 10:45. No training needed, we provide that at the time. This is a short and sweet way to help the school and students. Please join us, we can’t do it without you!
