Fall Festival

FALL FESTIVAL IS THIS THURSDAY, October 28th!!!!

Early Out 2:30 - We are releasing students early on Thursday so staff can prepare for the Fall Carnival

4:30-7:00 p.m. Fall Carnival If the weather is bad, we will hold the carnival in the building.

Please have your children bring a bag to collect the candy and prizes they will win!

Costumes are not required for this event. There will be a DJ ,, jump houses and a hot dog, chip, drink meal will be only $2.00 . There will be lots of games and prizes.


Our school has done extremely well with low transmission of COVID cases. We would ask that you consider wearing a mask to this event for the safety of everyone if you are a high risk individual , especially if we move indoors due to the weather. I am leaving this decision up to individual families. Please do not attend if you are exhibiting any symptoms of COVID.
