Class Connector Volunteers Still Needed

We still need CLASS CONNECTORS for the following teachers:

  • Ms. Anderson
  • Ms. Bodden
  • Ms. Howard-Powell
  • Ms. Huss
  • Ms. Sorenson

If you’d enjoy supporting your child’s teacher by coordinating classroom volunteers, helping families to get to know each other on a more personal level by organizing social gatherings, and giving back to the school by letting people know about TM events & volunteer needs, contact the Volunteer Coordinator at volunteering@tmlink.org.
