The PTA is now electronic

REMINDER: In an effort to save on printing and mailing as well as promote "green" practices at school, the PTA does not mail print materials home to parents. Instead, the vast majority of PTA materials will be sent via e-mail.  The only exceptions are households without access to a computer. Please take the time to review the information about this, fill out the appropriate form and return it to the school.



Kindergarten teachers need supplies

Dear Parents: The kindergarten teachers are in need of certain supplies for this school year. If you have any of the following items at home, please send them in with your kindergartener - or send them in with your older student to drop off at the kindergarten classrooms - at any time during the year if you happen to come across them. Thank you for your support with this effort.

Coffee cans with lids
Acorn tops
Small seashells
Different types of seeds (vegetable or flower)
Old children's tap shoes fundraiser
