Volunteer Spotlight

 To appreciate the volunteers who volunteer their valuable time to make our programs come into fruition, we are doing a volunteer spotlight on all our "super" volunteers.  If you see them in school, please take a minute to thank them for all their hard work.

  

 Our first "Super" volunteer is Elisabeth McCuiston. She is the committee chair for Books and Beyond as well as Staff Appreciation. She recently also took the lead in organizing our Neon Dance Party. Queen of organization, she’s come aboard the PTA and made herself an invaluable member of our team. Thank you, Elisabeth for all that you do for DDE!
