One Lunch 2018-19
Primary & Backup Volunteers Needed
Have you always wanted to volunteer for Arcadia One Lunch?  Now is your chance! We are recruiting One Lunch volunteers for the 2018-2019 school year right now.  One Lunch is a great Arcadia tradition and we couldn't do it without parent volunteers.  It is a fun opportunity to be on campus, and the commitment is manageable and well-planned out.  Most volunteers work one lunch period (less than an hour) every other week.  You can also sign up for the sub list or you can split a shift with someone (meaning you only work a shift once a month).  Please contact Karen Treon for more information or with any questions.  ( ktreon@gmail.com ).
