Help Feed the Teachers: ESPO Conference Potluck
Food and Volunteers Needed Thursday, Oct. 13
From ESPO: On Thursday, October 13, Emerson teachers and staff follow up their busy school day with parent conferences until 8:00pm. Many teachers will only have a short break that doesn’t allow them to leave, so ESPO parents generously provide a potluck dinner to get them through to the end of the night.
If you prefer not to cook, we can still use your help! A few parents are needed to assist with set-up on Thursday after school as well as items that are needed such as utensils.
