Service Opportunities – November 16

The SMUS Parents’ Auxiliary is hosting the Annual SMUS Christmas Gala on December 2 and they need volunteers before the event and the morning/afternoon of the event to help with decorating and setting up. They have an online sign-up system with all of the details. **If you are a boarding student you will be attending the event as a guest, so please don’t sign up for any jobs during the event (6 p.m. onward) because you will be eating and dancing!
