Many thanks to our families for your financial support with another amazing Scholastic Book Fair!  We had many books purchased for Teacher 'Wish Lists' and many more bought for students' independent reading.  We have earned a substantial amount of Scholastic Credit through our Book Fairs and are excited to be able to put the credit to use with a new PTA project.  Come to the PTA Meeting this Thursday to find out about what is in the works and how you can help! 

Art Show & Silent Auction Planning Meeting - Monday (2/14)

We need your help!  This event is our largest fundraiser of the year.  The more help we have, the easier the task!  Please consider being part of our Auction Committee.  Our first committee meeting will be on Monday, February 14th (show your love for our school on Valentine's Day), immediately following drop off at 8:45 in the library.  Come enjoy breakfast with us and get involved in one of our biggest and best events of the year!   Questions - Kristi Towey,
