Other Information and Announcements

Wednesday, May 4, PTA Meeting Will Start At 9:00 AM

The May PTA Meeting will begin at 9 a.m. instead of 9:15. There is a field trip leaving at 9:15 that several of the parents wanted to attend so we are starting early to accommodate this request. Voting for the 2016-17 Executive Board will take place at 9:30 a.m. Hear about staff appreciation week, be part of the raffle for the online auction, from Mr. Bibbee/Mrs. Min, and more. Hope to see you there!
