Dear Stallion Families,

Thank you to our amazing PTA and everyone that came out on Friday for our Family Movie Night! It was a wonderful evening and we look forward to more family PTA events in the Spring!

As we reflect on all the things to be thankful for this year, we are most thankful for your children and your partnership to make these the BEST of days! Have a safe and wonderful Thanksgiving next week!

To the BEST of days,

Mrs. Putman


Turkey Trot

On Friday November 18th we will be conducting our annual Turkey Trot during each grade level’s specials time. The students will be running on a track mapped out around the school. Students will run for 30 minutes and collect a popsicle stick for every lap that they complete. At the conclusion of the 30 minutes students will take their popsicle sticks and deposit them in a bucket labeled with their home room teachers name. In each grade the teacher with the most popsicle sticks will earn a popcorn party donated by the PTA!!! Please help and remind students to eat a healthy breakfast the morning of and to wear the proper clothing for this event.

Want to help? PTA is looking for volunteers! Please click here to sign up!
