Greetings, Parent Volunteers!

Our Academic Carnival is just around the corner! I hope you marked your calendars for our school wide celebration of academic success!

Please note that only those district approved volunteers that signed up to be an academic carnival volunteer will be permitted on campus that day. If you can no longer volunteer to host an activity, please email Mrs. Cassilly at to secure a replacement no later than May 20th.

There will be an email reminding you of your assignment for May 26th the week before so be on the lookout for more details to come. Looking forward to ending another successful year of excellence at Pelican Marsh in partnership with our students, staff and volunteers at our annual Academic Carnival!
