Halloween Parties are here!!


Throughout the school year, students have an opportunity to celebrate a variety of events. In the past, we have always welcomed visitors to join our celebrations. Unfortunately, due to safety guidelines, we are requesting visitors to not attend class parties or parades this school year. Although, this was a difficult decision, we feel it is the safest choice for our students. Please feel free to contact the school office for further information and as always, thank you for your support!
