Lunchtime Visitors!

We are excited to welcome parents back to eat lunch with their students! Unfortunately, we will have to limit the number of visitors each day to FIVE per grade level, and you may only eat lunch with your child. Reserve your place by calling the front office (936-709-8400) no more than one week in advance. In order to welcome as many families as possible, you will be limited to one visit per week.
