PTA News and Event Reminders for the Week of February 5, 2018

Thank you to Kimberly Reilly and Cheryl Weaver and the rest of the 6th grade committee and volunteers for putting together a great 6th grade social!

And thank you to Mariah Gianakouros for running the Road Runners ongoing event:

Grades 1-5: Monday and Thursday, Road Runners (Grade 1 =  Mondays  and Grades 2-5 =  Thursdays): Parents are needed to hand out popsicle sticks while the kids are running, which helps the children remember how many laps they ran. The parents also cheer the kids on as they complete their laps. If you have any questions or suggestions, please email Mariah ([email protected]). This program could not run without parent support. Thanks so much for helping out. Sign-ups can be found here:  http://signup.com/go/UznBVEb.
