You are invited!

On Thursday, January 14th we will host a special PTA meeting at 6:00 p.m. We hope to have as many parents make it as possible! Child care activities will be provided for students in the gym during the meeting.

PTA is a great way for you to get involved in your child's education. Whether you wish to volunteer, be on the PTA board, or just be a "silent member", there is something for everyone!

Currently as a PTA we are working towards becoming a School of Excellence! We are hosting this meeting to involve all of our school families in the process. Please come out to hear more!
