    Book Fair Success!

    Thank you to all of our staff and volunteers who helped us with the book fair! The fair was open for 6 full days and we hosted a donut breakfast and evening shopping event in that amount of time. It was wonderful to see all the parent participation. It was a great success and the students loved it!

    A special THANK YOU to our PTO Board Member Beth Kowalczik who worked with Ms. Seren and Ms. Owens to make this event such a huge success!
