Happy New Year!

Upcoming Events:

  • The C3AC and PTSA meetings will be on Monday, January 12th.  This month C3AC will start at 6 pm.  If you don’t normally attend the C3AC meeting, this one may be of particular interest because we will be discussing the new budgeting process for our school next year.  The PTSA meeting will begin officially at 6:30 where we will probably continue the budgeting discussion and will also get an update about the second round of instructional rounds.  In the PTSA meeting, we will be discussing upcoming events including Health & Wellness night and Bring Dad to School to Day.  We will also begin building action items for at one of our parent feedback goal.  We will also initiate the process of forming our nominating committee for next year’s officers and start pulling together donations for the silent auction for the talent show later this spring.
  • Save the Date!  Health and Wellness Night is on Monday, January 26th.  We will have a chia seed cook off!  Also kids start growing your Chia Pets, we will have a chia pet contest too!  Get ready for a fun night full of activities such as hula hooping, an obstacle course and much more!
