Day of the Dead Celebration Volunteers –

 Background:  Montessori will be hosting the community (free) event on Saturday, November 3rd celebrating the Mexican holiday Day of the Dead—a celebration of loved ones who have passed.  Information will be coming home closer to the date, but mark your calendars!  There will be something for everyone from crafts, workshops, music, food vendors, etc.

Volunteers:  Right now, we need volunteers who are willing to come in and help make sugar skulls for the sugar skull painting craft.  We need hundreds made.  If you have an hour or more here and there and can help out during the school day, email back on this email and let us know your schedule.

We’ll be needing volunteers for the actual day before the event and the day of the event.  We will be letting you know about those jobs/times/etc. closer to the event.
