Choir

The choir performance on Monday night was amazing!!! Kelly Iverson and Heather Harman did a fantastic job preparing our choir for the program. Thank you for all the time and hard work that goes into helping these kiddos love music. They sang songs from The Nutcracker...Beautiful!!!

Thank you

A huge thank you to Heather Grim for going to get the food today, Stephenie for manning the office, and Lynn for decorating the library. Another huge thank you to Lindsay and Kim for making it possible for you to have an extra 30 min. by monitoring grade levels in the gym. This special treat would not have been possible without all of their help.


When you see PTA, please let them know how much you appreciated them covering lunch duty. We are so lucky to have such an amazing PTA and volunteers.
