  • Special shout out to all the one-on-ones and associates for going above and beyond to help our students in the classroom, and the extra patience in the busy areas of recess and lunchroom with students. We appreciate you!

FALL FEST SCHEDULE & INFO

HERE is the fall fest schedule. If you have any other ideas about a fun craft to offer during the free time let me know...we could have that set up in the lodge.


We will be eating Picnic style as an entire group. Groups will find a spot and lunches will be boxed/bagged for each homeroom. Heather Hadley will create a class list for lunches. We will also need to know students that need another option due to allergies.
