Welcome June!!!!

“How did it get so late so soon? It’s night before it’s afternoon. December is here before it’s June. My goodness how the time has flewn. How did it get so late so soon?”  Dr. Seuss

The last day of school will be here before we know it; many of us are getting ready for Stepping Up Ceremonies and Graduations but our Parent Teacher Association still has a few more events lined up for our kiddos so listen up:

  • Friday, June 13th is our 2nd annual Dance-A-Thon Fundraiser!!!  Make sure your kids kids-dancing-clip-artare wearing their dancing shoes because it will be a day filled with groovy music, thirst-quenching drinks and lots of fun!  Click on the link below to view the sponsor letter which will come home with your child; make sure you ask family and friends to help in this fundraiser- again all proceeds from the Dance-A-Thon will go to fund the various activities and programs that the PTA provides for our children during the school year!!  We will need volunteers so make sure you have your dancing shoes on as well!!!
