Pumpkin Grams

The Pumpkin Message Sale begins next week! The Fourth Grade students will be selling Pumpkin-Grams which will be delivered each afternoon beginning Thursday, October 20th and will run through Oct. 26th or until pumpkins supplies run out! The prices are as follows: 25 cents/paper pumpkin message; $1.00/gourd or tiny pumpkin; $2.00/pie pumpkin; $3.00/largest size pumpkin. The sale will run during lunch periods. Proceeds from the sale benefit fourth grade class field trips and activities


From October 17th - 28th, we will partner with other local schools and businesses, by collecting NEW socks and underwear. Infant-adult sizes are needed. Boy and girl. The items we collect will be used in “first night foster care bags” (assembled by Clara’s Hope Orphan Care Ministry) for the children in need. The classroom who donates the most, the PTO will give that classroom a pizza party!!!!!
