Fall Raffle and Boo Bash 2018: Success!
THANK YOU to the many parent volunteers who help make the Boo Bash such a great family night! We are especially grateful to Debbie O'Rourke for her leadership with this years event.
Returning to school for forgotten items...
The Power of Kindness
- (Be) Yourself
Elementary age children often have varied interests that change and evolve over time. Some interests will be short lived while others might "take root". It is important to encourage children to learn more about those things they are curious about. Finding our passion, regardless of age, gives us purpose in our lives. Our 4th graders showed GREAT interest/passion as they put on the annual 4th Grade Halloween Carnival at lunch this past Friday. (Additionally, many of the students also volunteered their time at the Boo Bash.) They found great purpose, pride and satisfaction as they shared an interest with classmates taking part in something greater than themselves. (See below to learn more about the 4th Grade Halloween Carnival.)
4th Grade Halloween Carnival was a HUGE success!
Thank you to our 4th graders (along with their teacher and families)!

Students may bring an appropriate school costume to wear during their classroom party. Please make sure costumes are safe and appropriate for elementary school children and for school.
