Dear Findley Families,


Thank you so much for supporting our PTA by donating to the Findley Oaks Fun Run! I know that the students are excited for the fun run tomorrow and it looks like we will have perfect weather for the event.


Please remember that if you are planning to volunteer, that you must be registered as a volunteer. Please click here to learn more about registering and to access the application.


We have not had our normal Veterans Day assembly since November 2019. We are planning to honor our veterans this year with a walk rather than a whole school assembly. Please complete this form if you and/or a family member are interested in participating. The event will take place on November 11. More details will be communicated to anyone who signs up.
