Attention Royal J members! Are you interested in earning hours toward the Royal J- Area One School Service category? One great way to do that is to help out at the upcoming Royal J Ceremony on Thursday, March 20th: there are several ways that you can participate! First, we need volunteers to be greeters, help set up and help clean up. Plus, we need a few students to be a part of the ceremony: A Master of Ceremonies, someone to lead the flag salute, someone to make introductions, and two students to help “pin” the Royal J recipients. You can volunteer for the entire time (up to 3 hours), or just for a part of the time (1-2 hours). If you are interested in being a part of this special evening (and earning School Service hours at the same time!), please see Mrs. Rashid (in room MH 8) to sign up and receive a permission slip that must be signed by your parent or guardian in order for you to be able to participate.
