As the Thanksgiving holiday is approaching, I would like to take this time to thank all of my parent volunteers that helped with the Halloween carnival!

October Fun!

The Halloween Carnival is slowly creeping up! We will be celebrating on Halloween, Monday, October 31st. There will be games, food, and LOTS of fun! I am asking that each first grade family donate $10 to contribute to our carnival. The money will go towards food and beverages for the BIG day! I am looking forward to seeing everyone there 🙂
