Thanks to all who came to Barnes & Noble to read and shop!

Thanks to Kevin & Kim for hosting us on Saturday!

Holiday Shop

Our PTA will host a Holiday Shop for our students on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. Information was sent home to parents on Friday. If you haven't signed up your class yet, please don't forget to do so on the spreadsheet I shared with you last week titled Holiday Shop Sign-Ups. The preview day is Tuesday and Wednesday - Thursday will be shopping days. It will be held in the hallway outside the media center. This should be a lot of fun for our kids!
