Bring in your old phones for charity.

    Please complete the Google Form linked below to see the times & days those students will be administered their exams.  If you have a neighbor or a friend that is looking to give back to the Anderson community, this is a great opportunity. 
    If you have a student that is taking an exam this year you can still volunteer, but not for the subject area that your student is taking.  Please see Ms. Williams for any questions or concerns that you may have. The best way to reach Ms. Williams is a [email protected].
