PTA Scheduled Events

Corey the Dribbler

Corey the Dribbler will be at our school February 19th!

(This event is during school and is for students only.)

Schools across the country are being inspired and awed by Former Harlem Globetrotter - Corey The Dribbler and his inspirational story! Corey Rich is a 4-Time Guinness record holder that’s been featured on TV and NBA Halftime Shows. Corey travels the country inspiring kids to R.E.A.D., a character education message. Respect, Education, Attitude/Activity, and Don’t Bully or Do Drugs are the Four Principles he encourages the students to live by. Corey teaches the value in reading and how it led him to win a spot on the Harlem Globetrotters. They are taught to respect their parents, teachers, classmates, and that bullying is not cool! Corey encourages the kids to excel in school while bringing a positive attitude with them every day. Staying active and fit is stressed along with drug awareness. Besides an unforgettable ball handling show, students will have fun being involved in several games with Corey, some including even the teachers! The kids will also have the chance to steal the ball from the World’s Best Ball Handler!

Ice Skating

PTA is working to coordinate an Ice Skating event at the Fuel Tank in Fishers for the month of March. Details will come soon ...
