We love to have volunteers in our media center. We especially need help during book fair weeks. Please consider volunteering in the media center. A few hours per week would make a difference. It is a very busy place. If you wuld like to assist for any length of time, please contact me at hannah.whichard@onslow.k12.nc.us!
