From the PTO

Welcome back to another school year!

We look forward to seeing everyone at the Ice Cream Social next Wednesday, August 21 from 5:30-6:30.

Meet your teachers, see your friends, and enjoy some ice cream from Heyn's.

Make sure to stop by the PTO table to get information for the upcoming year. In lieu of having students sell anything, we are again doing the Wizard Donation Drive. The suggested donation is $75 for your first student, $25 for any additional students. As always, any donation amount is appreciated. For Families that make a donation at the Ice Cream Social or BEFORE, every student will receive a Wickham LED light up high bounce ball.

Health Office Clothing

As we start the year we are in need of some clothing for our health office borrower's closet. If you have any gently used clothes in size 8 or larger we would love to have them.
