Spooky Spaghetti & School of Screams - TONIGHT!

We are looking forward to seeing everyone tonight at the Spooky Spaghetti & School of Screams Students Haunted House!  Everyone is welcome to come in costume, but please remember no weapons, gore, or masks.
If you did not pre-order, we will have a limited number of Spaghetti dinners for sale at the event, and you can buy additional Haunted House tickets as well.  We will accept cash, check, and credit card at the event.
**Note:  For our youngest Eagles, we will have a "Lights On" time to enjoy the Haunted House between 6-6:30 PM.  We want all our students to be able to enjoy everything this event offers!  The 5th grade has been working hard to create a fantastic Haunted House, and we hope everyone has fun with it and all of the additional Halloween Activities!
