October Count

October count day on October 3rd is an important day for our school. We receive funding from the state based upon the amount of students that are in attendance. In order to encourage students to attend, we are having a pajama day! Students can wear their pajamas to school (no slippers please) on October 3rd. Any class with all students in attendance will be entered into a raffle for a pizza party. We can't wait to see your jammies!
