October marks the first month of grade-level performances, and this month we have the 5th graders performing on the 4th Wednesday of the month. They will be performing a play under the able direction of Mr. Perera and Ms. Powell. A huge thank you to all who have been volunteering with the PTSA. The movie night was a great success (despite being moved inside due to weather) and we are looking forward to a fun and fruitful year. If you are not already a member, please come and join. Parents, students, staff and community members are all welcome!
