Popcorn Volunteers Are Needed at Randall
Popcorn is offered to all Randall students approximately twice a month. Volunteers are needed on Friday (and a few Thursday) mornings to help pop the corn. Commitment is approximately 7:50-10:50 am. Please consider volunteering a few times this school year to help continue this fun Randall tradition.
