Are you camera savvy or
 tech savvy?

The Yearbook has a few parent volunteer needs:


1) Someone to take a look at our 4 Yearbook cameras, possibly clean them, and make sure they are in good working order for next year. We are hoping a parent who is a photographer or has connections to a photography store/studio might be able to help us with this.

  

2) A parent who is tech savvy to come take a look at our Macs and make sure they are in top working order for next year... We also need to figure out a good way to clean the keyboards and mice - some have stopped being fully-operational due to years of use.

 

3) We are hoping that some of our parents have "stuff lying around" they don't want/need anymore. We'll take cameras, camera bags, and laptops that people would like to donate.


Please contact Kate Tobin if you can help at
