This has always been a first-class event that gets almost 100% attendance. Parents donate sandwiches, salads, soups, desserts, drinks, etc., and volunteers are needed to set up, serve food, and clean-up after. Sign-up sheets for this will be passed around at monthly meetings, as well as via email.Current chairperson: Judy Petraske, Mary Ellen WallMCAS SnacksHeld in March, May, and June, the students are proviced with healthy snack foods at school during Spring MCAS testing.
