Ready for back to school?  Want to see a familiar face?

Give Mabry two to four hours of your time as we prepare our school for new and returning families alike. Our teachers could use a few extra hands to help prepare classrooms.  

Stop by school Friday August 5th from 10am-1pm.  

Your time will be well spent making copies, cutting out names, helping with all the final touches. Check in to the Main Office.  

We also need volunteers Saturday August 6th from 9am to 12pm for Beautification Day. Come prepared to give a little sweat equity as we spread mulch and prepare to welcome all the kids back.  

Parents and Teachers and working together is what helps makes our Association and school A+++.
