DEAR PARENTS

Thank you for your wonderful attendance at Our Meet the Teacher Evening! It has been a wonderful start to the year, and we are excited of the already amazing parent volunteer and participation for our school. As mentioned in the meeting, we appreciate all our parents generosity in volunteering for our students, as all our volunteers help to keep our school running well and help us to offer more to each and every child, including your own! We are resending the Halloween Bash Volunteer form home, as our Halloween Bash is always sold out and such great FUN, and we can use your help! Thank you again to all our parents for your continued support!
