Today - Refrigerator Cleaning!

Before you head to your exotic spring break haven (or couch to binge watch Netflix), make sure you clean out your belongings from the basement fridges. Jon-Paul Moody and Becky Wimberg will be spring cleaning the refrigerators next Monday, March 10.  They will toss anything that remains.  Don't lose that sweet Barbie lunch box because you forgot to grab it before you take your well deserved break.  And, give them a high-five for terminating some of the science projects that grow amongst your lunches. Happy Spring Break!
