Snack Shack Parent Volunteers

We are in need of parent volunteers to help out at the Snack Shack each day during the lunch period. This is a fun, easy way to help the kids and make a difference at MTMS! All proceeds from sales go back to programs and activities for students and staff at MTMS! Volunteers will be selling snacks & drinks during the school lunch period from 11:40 a.m. - 12:15 p.m. Lunchtime is at the same time every day of the week, except early release days which are half days and there is no lunch period. For more information, visit our signup page here.
