First Friday Coffee

Please join us for the final First Friday Coffee of the year!  This week’s coffee will be hosted by the Administration as a thank you to all the classes and parents who have hosted the event this year.

Feel free to bring a breakfast food to share, drink some coffee or tea, and catch up perhaps one last time in our current home!
If you have time from 8:30am – 10am, volunteers are needed to count the utensils and plateware before the next year. Please let Dona know at dbnishi@gmail.com if you can stay (or who?) The more, the merrier – and the faster we’ll be done!
