Fun Run

Thank you Students, Families, Teachers, Staff, and Volunteers for helping make the Fun Run a HUGE success!! Because of you, we surpassed our goal! We had pledges from 34 States and 4 Countries - Nigeria, Iran, Romania and of course the USA!!

Since we opened up pledging one week early this year and had so many participants, Boosterthon had to order more prizes. Because of our school break, prizes will be delivered Tuesday.

Thank you again for all of the support we received during this event!!

TOP winners will be announced soon!

Harvest Festival

Friday, October 18th at 5-8pm is our annual Harvest Festival! This is one of our most popular and well-attended family events of the year, so get your bracelets now! Cash accepted at the “door”. We will have a pre-paid line and in-person payment line to speed up entry.

Tickets on sale now! One bracelet gets you access to unlimited games, prizes and activities (kids 3 and under are free). Come hungry! Food trucks will be on site (food cost separate). 20% of the food proceeds go back to the school! Fantastic DJ, inflatables, trackless train, some old and new games, amazing vendors and a silent auction!

Calling all Vendors! Please contact Leah Bassett at if you would like to participate in this big family event. No businesses duplicated. First come first served.

Harvest Festival volunteers are needed! One hour shifts. The PTC would like to ask any parents or grandparents who are available to help during the festival to please contact Leah Bassett at to sign up.

Cake Walk desserts are needed! It wouldn't be a Harvest Festival without the cake walk! Anyone who can donate cookies, brownies, cupcakes or cakes for the cake walk please drop off your donations at the front office between the dates of 10/16-10/18 (no nuts please). This year we ask that you separate the smaller baked goods such as cookies/brownies/etc. into smaller portions (small wrapped plates or disposable containers work well). Do not drop off desserts any earlier than the 16th or later than 10am on the 18th.

We are excited for our fall family night!!

It is time to start collecting box tops for education. We are expecting great things with box tops this year!

A collection sheet with a letter was sent home on Friday. Please be sure to read the letter. Changes with how box tops will be collected have been implemented. We have already collected 75 box tops, $7.50 for this school year.
