A Note from Mrs. Grant

On Monday, we will have our Living Rosary Prayer at 8:30am on the Soccer field. Parents you are welcome to attend. On Tuesday, we are officially finished with our first 9 weeks of the school. It feels like it has gone by so fast! On Friday, we will have our annual PTO Halloween Party. I look forward to seeing everyone there at 5:30pm.

Snack Shack is going very well! Please remember to check the list for your child’s week to be our Snack Shack managers. Our next Snack Shack manager is Connor Williamson. Snacks and the receipts must be brought in on Monday, October 21. Snack Shack will be on Friday, October 25th. Thank you for supporting the sixth grade in their business endeavor.
