Picture Day Q&A, Field Trip payments due and our first PTO meeting date.

We would like to thank all the Kindergarten families who came out to the Kindergarten Picnic on Friday. It was a fun night of meeting new friends and dancing the night away with DJ Mike. We hope all your children listened to him and went right to bed without complaining! Check out the fun pictures on Facebook of the night. A big Thank You goes out to JP and Jen Matychak for chairing the event. It would not have been possible without their hard work and help.

Cultural Arts Event

Our Cultural Arts Committee is an integral part of our PTO. Throughout the year they plan events for all of the students within the school. Some events are school wide while others are grade specific. The first event of the year is happening Thursday, September 29th from 9-9:40am for 3rd and 4th graders. The Energized Guyz will present an interactive comedy with Nikki Neutron teaching students important lessons about resources and conservation. You can learn more about the Energized Guyz here.
