Our students are excited about the upcoming Stampede! This is such a fun event for our students and families while raising funds for our school as well. The Stampede will be on May 6. We need more parent volunteers to assure this event runs smoothly. Remember, this is the first event open to all families on campus. Since this is an outdoor event, you will not have to show proof of vaccination or a negative Covid test. I hope to see many of our families at school on May 6 for our annual Stampede!
