Just pinging this again!

Adam, Michael and I need just a few more volunteers on both Wednesday and

students at Sammamish HS.

This is really fun, easy way to engage with high school students and make a

The times are:
*Wednesday (tomorrow) 9:30 am-1:00 pm *
*Thursday 9:30 am-11:00 am*
*Thursday 1:30 pm-3:00 pm*

Thanks again so much!
