Wednesday Folder – March 1, 2017

You’re a superstar, yes, that’s what you are, you know it

🎶 Come on, [birds]
Let your body move to the music
Hey, hey, hey
Come on, [birds]
Let your body go with the flow
You know you can do it… 🎶

This Friday the 3rd through 5th grade thunderbirds will rock the evening afternoon away at the ? ShamRock Dance ?.

$5 will get you an entry ticket, one drink and 2 cookies. Bring extra moolah for the photobooth, nachos, and popcorn. All funds raised will help fund the 4th grade field trip to The Alamo. The party starts at 4 p.m. and is over at 6 p.m. Tickets on sale in advance or at the door. (4th graders don’t forget your water and cookie donations!)

So grab your friends and get out on the dance floor! 🎶


PTA executive board elections are in April and we need a Vice President! The job involves supporting the President, helping to keep track of the PTA calendar and supporting PTA event coordinators. Average time commitment- 1 hour/week (sometimes more near events or on board meeting weeks).
