PTA meeting Monday evening

Monday evening at 6:00 we will have a PTA general membership meeting open to everyone. There will be a brief business meeting, followed by an opportunity to experience the Virtual Reality devices that students are able to use here at school. The VR demonstration will be about 15 minutes long. Also, the book fair will be open until 6:00 for your convenience.

Name tag holders

If you would like a name tag holder for your car, we have plenty available. They will be available beginning this afternoon for free. As we've done rainy day dismissal, it seems that the cars with the name tags hanging from the visors like these are really easy to see, so we wanted to offer the option.
