Feeling crafty?  I am looking for 2 or 3 parent volunteers that would be interested in providing a holiday craft to work on with students during our craft rotation on December 20th. I plan to have an ornament making station for my block.  Crafts would need to be completed in 30 minutes to get through all rotations and volunteers would need to provide all materials.  Let me know if you are interested!  I appreciate your help BIG time!
