Parents and Grandparents: We have several costumes which need to be hemmed up and are looking for volunteers who can sew. They can just be stitched on a machine, no hand stitching is necessary. Please let us know if you would be willing to help out and if we can send it home with a student. We will need to have them back by Monday morning Dec. 9 for dress rehearsal. Thanks so much for all the support you give our school. Mrs. Rybinski Music Teacher St. Edward Catholic School
