A Note from our PTO Room Chair...
As we start off the school year I wanted to introduce myself as the Room Chair for Mr. Gasper’s class. I am very excited to start planning the events for the year and know that they will be a lot of fun! This year we will have two class parties: one on November 1st and one on March 13th.
Please let me know if your child has any allergies so that I can plan the snacks accordingly. If you are interested in helping out with the parties and did not sign up on the PTO volunteer sheet at Open House, please contact me. I am looking forward to a fun year with all of our kids. Please feel free to contact me if you have questions. My number is (417) 366-9448 or my email is, Clarkjordan93@yahoo.com
