PTO Updates

Greenhouse Clean-Up: We are working to bring our school greenhouse back to life and need your help! After a few years of sitting empty, it could really use some TLC. We will be working to clean out weeds on Monday, May 23rd from 9am - 11am. If you have an hour (or two) and can help, we would love the extra hands! Some of the weeds have thorns, so please bring a pair of gloves. Don't forget to sign in at the office before heading over to the greenhouse. If you have any questions, feel free to contact Shellie Callahan at teamcallahan@gmail.com.


Talent Show Reminder: The 3rd & 4th Grade Talent Show will be held on Thursday, June 2nd at 6:30pm in the café. There is one more practice on Thursday, May 26th after school. We're looking forward to all the great acts planned for this year's show!

PTO President Shadow/Vacancy: We are still looking for someone to shadow our current President for the 2016/17 school year and take over in 2017. In the past, we have had co-Presidents and are open to this idea again! If you are interested, please contact Stacy at tspoon7939@yahoo.com.
