Friends of Baxter School – Would you like to make a difference? Everyday there are kids in our community that could use a little extra help. Lord of Life would like to partner with Baxter Elementary to provide classroom volunteers to help in lots of ways. Helping would be at your convenience, for as long as you are able, and as often as you’d like. If you are interested, please contact Principal Tammy Stellmach at 454-6400 for more information. Check out ISD181.org – click on community education and volunteering to fill out the volunteer form. Would you rather help at another school? Please contact Sally Jacobsen at sally@jacobsenlaw.com and we’ll make it happen!
