School CLUBS

Most before and after school clubs begin this week! Specific information related to your child's club was sent home last week so check with your child or do a book bag dig if you haven't received that information. You may also look below for a reminder of the club schedule for the club to which your child is assigned.

Also, remember that the Yoga Club starts second semester.

Quest to Fill the Chest Fundraiser - HELP NEEDED

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.


We are looking for parents to come in daily between THIS WEEK 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.
