Only 11 Days Until the Gorrie Fall Festival!

The countdown is on for the Gorrie Fall Festival! Join the fun on Friday, Oct. 9th from 5:30-7:30PM. We will have food, games, a bounce house, inflatable obstacle course, cake walk and so much more.


Take advantage of the opportunity to purchase pre-sale tickets and avoid ticket lines the night of the event! Pre-sale tickets will be available for purchase each morning beginning Monday, Oct. 5th in front of the school. Several ticket packages and pricing options will be available.


This summer's floods ruined many of the PTA supplies kept in the school basement. Consequently, we are asking for a few donated items for the Fall Festival to help save PTA funds. We need nail polish, nail art/stickers, and face painting supplies including paint, brushes, and sponges. Please drop off your donations to the front office by Wednesday, Oct. 7th.
