If you are not registered, you may register at any WCPSS school. Proctors should plan to volunteer with testing from 7:30am-noon. Testing may take slightly longer or finish slightly earlier. Volunteers will need to attend one of the scheduled proctor sessions, prior to the start of testing. Volunteer Proctor Form

Thank you in advance for your time!
Carnage's Ecology/Botany program holds a week-long annual Mother’s Day plant sale, which this year will be May 7 - 11. PTSA is coordinating volunteers for this plant sale, as we are required by WCPSS to have parents handle all cash (no students or teachers allowed to handle the funds).
Please sign up for one of the time slots below to help support this unique science program. ALL proceeds go to upkeep of the greenhouse and supplies to keep our program functioning at a level where students can have hand-on science and stewardship experiences.
If you are not able to volunteer, please come out & purchase flowers, herbs & vegetables during that week. Students can also fill your decorative containers with an herb garden or flowers of your choosing - just bring your pot with you and they will do it while you wait - you only pay for the plants used. Get your spring containers done for you and support Carnage's stellar science programs at the same time
