It was wonderful to see many of you during our Halloween festivities!  Students enjoyed parading around in their creative costumes and playing games with their classmates.  We thank parents for helping plan and facilitate classroom parties and cheering us on during the parade!  The pictures below capture how much fund we had at the event.

Digger Dash Updates
We have already received pledges totaling $24,575 from the Digger Dash!  We thank all of the families that contributed and helped make this event possible!  We are well on our way to fully funding a new shade structure for the front playground.  Please turn in any remaining pledge packets to the PTO mailbox in the office.
