Parent Cooperative Jobs
Each family is required to sign up for one BJEP parent cooperative job per student registered in order for payment to be accepted. Please use the link to the right to view the job descriptions and sign up for a job.  As we are planning a number of special events to celebrate BJEP’s 50th year, we encourage families to sign up for an extra job or two. We could use the help!
