Oct-6While student classes are in session, there will be a meeting for parents interested in volunteering with SDMC. This may include any of the "Service Portfolios" or "Incidental Opportunities" noted in your Student Profiles, or any other idea related to parent support. This meeting should not last very long, but breakout discussion can continue as long as useful.
