Can you volunteer at Movie Night??

Hello Gledhill families!

We are looking for individuals who are able to give a bit of their time tomorrow,  Friday October 25th at our first Movie Night of the year!

This is one of the important fundraisers that we do that help raise funds for school initiatives!  It is with parent and family help that these events are so successful!

If you’re not able to volunteer for this Movie Night, there are three more movie nights this school year that we will still need help for!

Please check out this link for volunteer opportunities on all four Movie Nights!

Thanks everyone!
