Recess Supervisors Needed

Sep 24, 2013 We need you! We here at Lee are looking for responsible and caring volunteers who would like to help out during lunch and recess time.

Our recess/lunch block runs from 11:45 - 12:55, if you can help out any time in that block it would be fantastic. READ MORE
