Scarborough Fair- Thank you!

What a great weekend for our community! Thanks to the help of 200 parent volunteers and a planning committe of 30, Scarborough Fair 2012 was a big success.

There were so many people that contributed creative ideas and many hours to make this day the best it could be. Many thanks to our hard-working committee, all of the parent volunteers, and the families who attended this fun event. We truly are A Community Engaged.

November Parent Guild Meeting Times

Later that day, we are offering a 5:30 p.m. meeting in the Upper Library for parents who cannot attend the morning meeting. Perfect for parents who use our aftercare program!

Box Top Drive Results

Congratulations to the Blue Team for collecting 3263 Box Tops! They will receive 50 points towards their yearly total in the Spirit Competition. Great job to the Red Team for collecting 3147 Box Tops. Thank you to Moya Varner and the Box Tops Committee for their work creating this drive and counting all of the Box Tops.

We will continue to collect Box Tops throughout the year, just turn them into Ms. Reid's office. Let's see if we can get to 10,000 Box Tops before the end of the school year!
