PTA Update

Thank you to all the families who donated to our Faculty Conference Meal last week! We received several thank you from faculty and staff and I know they really appreciated it.


We also want to thank everyone for helping with our Family night on October 24. We had a great turnout and I hope everyone enjoyed it as well as we did.
