PTO Meeting: All Things ASPEN!
Thursday, Nov. 1st, 6:30pm
1315 Washington Street
Start Time Task Force
We are nearing the end of our fundraiser and appreciate everyone who has showed their support. We know how busy families are...so if you have not yet gotten started...we ask you to start today! There is still time and it only takes a few minutes to register and share online or to show the brochures to your family and friends. Each item sold helps to make a difference in the lives of our kids. It provides for opportunities that are not possible without your help. Let's finish strong. .
Remember: Packets are Due by October 29th!

We do have some need based scholarships available, please have your student come to the main office for a form.
Registration Deadline: November 15th
Scholarship applications Deadline: November 1st
Please note that we have started to wait-list students. Once we reach 180 all those on the wait-list can be added to the fourth bus. If you enroll now and we don't make the 180 your deposit will be fully refunded.
Please note that we will start a wait list at 140 students to 180 students to avoid an increase in the cost of the trip. Over 75 students have already registered!
