  • Middle School parents:  If you are interested in joining the PTA’s Middle School Committee, sign up here:  http://signup.com/go/JxiSZNM.  The committee is dividing into subcommittees for each grade to plan grade-specific social events. 8th grade is exploring the idea of changing Class Night.  6th and 7th grade will be meeting on Tuesday, October 3rd at 7 pm. 8th grade will be meeting on Wednesday, Oct. 4th at 7 pm.  The grade reps will reach out to all those signed up for the committee to give them details about the meetings.

  • Trick or Trunk is coming up Friday, Oct. 27 from 4:30 to 6:00 and we can use some volunteers to decorate their trunks.  Trick-or-treaters should also sign up so we know how many to expect. We are asking that trick-or-treaters donate candy or non-food prizes if they can.  Please make sure they are allergy-friendly so that everyone who wants to can participate safely.  Sign up and the list of allergy-friendly treats are available at http://signup.com/go/vJDkAni.
