Boosterthon starts next week!

On Monday, October 10th, Boosterthon will be kicking off with our students. This is the PTO fundraiser for the year. Students will learn about positive character traits and also have a fitness goal- running as group on Thursday, October 20th. Please see the attached flyer from the PTO for more information.

And if you'd like to join us, the 5th and 6th graders will be running at 1:30 and the 7th and 8th graders will be running at 2:45. We hope to see you there.

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact the PTO. Here's a link to the PTO website and here's a link to the meeting notes from the school year.

Playground progress

It's pretty exciting on the playground. The site has been prepped, the playground set has arrived, and the workers have started putting together some of the pieces. We hope that all will be completed by the end of next week, but that depends upon the weather. Stay tuned to Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook for updates.
