Quest to Fill the Chest Fundraiser

Quest To Fill The Chest, our "no fuss" fundraiser is a family donation campaign where 100% of the profits will be able to stay in our PTA.

Quest for the Chest runs Thursday, October 15-25.

Quest to Fill The Chest- Visits to distribute prizes to kids

We are looking for parents to come in daily between October 16th and October 25th to take around a treasure box to each grade level and allow students who have brought in donations to choose a prize.

You will visit the grade level in the collaborative space outside the classrooms and kids will come out to you. Scholars will get to choose a prize from one of our treasure boxes! Simple, easy and FUN!

The time commitment is from 9:00 - 915 each morning.

Before and After School CLUBS

Most clubs will begin the week of October 22nd. Please make sure to check out your child's backpack this week as each club will be sending home specific information.

Also, remember that the Yoga Club starts second semester.

Bus Update

Effective Thursday 10/11/18 some Route 3 students will be reassigned to Route 5 (Bus #1134 - Ms. Weldon). This change allows for route efficiency. Your assistance is needed in making sure your child is familiar with the rules and regulations at the bus stop and on the bus. Remind them that riding the bus is a privilege and that safety concerns are very important. Safety is always important, but at the same time we want their ride to be enjoyable.
