Volunteer Opportunities for Cinderella

 Hello PS11 Families, The 5th Grade show, Cinderella, is coming up and we need your help!

In addition, we are looking for everything from a parent sound crew, costume alterrations, set assembly, backstage hands, photographers, videographers, etc! No matter your skill set, there is something for you. So lend a hand and help our 5th grade show be a success! Click here to see a list of ways you can get involved.
