THE HALLOWEEN PARTY IS AT RISK OF BEING CANCELLED! We are still short of the volunteers we need to make this party a success. If we do not receive the amount of volunteers we need this party will be cancelled. We will not attempt to continue without enough help. With more than 800 guests each year, we need lots of help to make this event happen! We need help with donations, set up, games, selling food, baking treats for the bake walk and clean up. Please consider signing up for a volunteer slot! Adult volunteers receive free admission to the party! Save on the entry fee! If you will be attending, please consider purchasing advance tickets to save time at the door. Advance entry order forms will be accepted until Tuesday, October 22nd. When filling out forms, please check for errors. Some forms are being turned in with several adults and no students listed. Visit our PTA website or click the link below to sign up to volunteer today!

Fliers went home last week requesting donations for candy. Please consider making a candy donation so that we have enough for all students. Donations can be dropped off in the bin at the front entrance of the school or sent to school with your student. Donations will be accepted through Friday, October 25th.

Submit Box Top certificates and codes to earn more. The classroom with the most clipped box tops will receive a prize! October 25th is the last day to submit box tops for the classroom contest! Please remember to mark the envelope or plastic bags with your child’s classroom for it to be included in the class count. Questions? Contact Charitra at
