VOLUNTEER SIGN-UP CAREER FAIR DEC 17
Calling all volunteers!!!!!
Middle Gate Career Fair

Middle Gate School will be holding a career fair for our children. We are seeking parent volunteers to come and speak about their career.  This event will take place on Monday, December 17th.  If this is something that you may be interested in volunteering for please complete and return to MGS by December 1st.  Once we receive this form one of us will be in touch to provide more details.


This is very preliminary; therefore you are not committed by simply returning this form.
Thank you in advance!
