P.A.S.E. Meeting this Thursday!


Candy and Trinket donations NEEDED!!!

TRICK OR TRUNK COLLECTIONS: There will be black and orange bins out by the main door of the school for the trinkets and treat collections. We will have out every day of school for the next 2 weeks! You can also send in with your child and have sent down to the office. If you are planning on attending the event on Friday the 25th – we ask that each family donate 1 bag of candy and 1 bag of trinkets to help offset the costs to our decorators!!!!


Crossing Guard Appreciation/Walk to School Day

Mark your calendars because we have a busy morning on October 2nd!

Leave a little early or bike to school if you can, it’s WALK TO SCHOOL DAY! Make sure you thank our wonderful crossing guards who keep us safe each and every day!

In order to make this event possible, we NEED YOU!!! We are still looking for volunteers to hand out stickers to students that morning. Volunteers will be standing by all the grade door entrances! If you are interested, please sign up HERE!


Trick or Trunk

We are capping the number of cars at 25 to ensure the safety of our children. It’s filling up quick! We only have 15 more spots left for Trick or Trunk!
