Last month, you received a SAVE THE DATE for February 12th-16th. We thought we’d give you a head’s up – more information will be coming in next week’s Wednesday Folders. Donations can be dropped off all week during the Fundraiser or made online at

Keep an eye on this space…we will be celebrating our donors from years past and announcing fundraising events and contests in the coming weeks. Let’s make this our most successful year yet!

  • Aug 16
    Ice Cream Social/Meet Your Teacher

    Time: 3:30 pm-5:30 pm


    Annual Back-to-School Ice Cream Social: Find classroom assignments and meet your teacher at this annual event. Come by any time after 3:30 and stroll through your classroom. The cafeteria will have information about the school available and ice cream/non-allergen icy pops available to cool off from the heat. Please plan on stopping by the cafeteria with your child.

    The social is also a great time to bring school supplies to your classroom too! School supplies can be placed in a bag with your child’s name on it. Please do not place your child’s name on individual items/school supplies within the bag. If you cannot make the social, school supplies can be brought in the first week of school. Questions about supplies can also be posed to teachers at the social or during the first week of school as well, and purchased thereafter.
