 SPRUCING UP ST. NICK’S

The classrooms all have fresh paint but we still need help sanding/painting all the trim.  Then we can start on the hallway and bathrooms.  Please see Erik or Kelly if you have time to help.  Thanks.

 The Green Power monthly sign-up sheet for 2019 is posted on the Bolger Board (thank you to several of you who have already signed up!).  As a reminder, this is an invitation to folks who want to volunteer to provide the monthly fee ($36 additional per month) on our CMP electric bill that supports generation of electricity from Maine-based renewable resources.  This helps reduce our portion of fossil fuel use.  Thank you for your generosity.
