Hello ABC Families!

Please sign up to volunteer with the kids in the garden on one or more Fridays! The activity listed is a suggestion. If you would like to do something else, you are welcome to. Just contact Sarah Kelman at sewkelman@gmail.com or text her at (714)718-3957 to let her know what materials you need so she can use the school's garden funds to pay for them. If you buy supplies, give your receipts to Sarah to get reimbursed. If Sarah does not hear from you, she will have the instructions and materials to complete the activity listed ready for you at the classroom on Friday morning.
