Bus Driver Appreciation (October 8-12)
PTA is proud to show our appreciation to the bus drivers who safely transport our children to and from school each day.
Donuts with Dad (October 19)
This PTA sponsored event gives dads, grandpas & uncles a chance to spend an hour before school with their children and socialize with other dads. We provide donuts, coffee, juice and milk.
Art to Remember (Oct - Dec)
This Fundraiser takes your student's art work and puts them on note cards, mugs, coasters, t-shirts, etc. This will be done in time for Christmas...great gift ideas!
Reflections is a National PTA program that encourages our children to express themselves through the arts. Students choose to submit an entry based on the annual Reflections theme in one or more of the following categories: photography, literature, visual arts, dance choreography, video production and music composition. Entries are judged and awards given at local, state and national levels.
During Education Week each year, PTA presents vouchers to teachers to purchase items that will improve the classroom and benefit our children.
