Thank you Martha for co-Chairing the ASB activities for the last two years, and organizing students and parents for the Magazine Drive, Student Socials, and Loose Change Drive. Thank you for managing all the activities and volunteers for Taking Care of Business Days, and organizing parents as JA chaperones for multiple teachers.
