As cliché as it is, this event would not be possible without the help and donations of all the wonderful teachers, paraprofessional staff, parents, students, the amazing custodians and the township communities that donated all of the dresses and accessories!
Volunteerism abounds from all around, within
the school community, South Brunswick Township and the surrounding
communities. Our volunteers are the
heart and soul behind the dress event and the Viking Closet!!!
