4th Grade Parent Meeting TONIGHT!

This meeting is presented by some of your fellow 4th Grade Parents with help from the 5th Grade Teachers, PTSA, and past and current 5th Grade Parents.

Come hear a proposal for next year's 5th Grade Haunted House fundraiser and bring your own ideas to the table! This meeting will be the second (after this morning) to discuss the 5th Grade Haunted House.  If you wish to be part of the planning but cannot attend either meeting please email us to stay informed.  Other events we will briefly discuss are 5th Grade Sweatshirts, our Carnival booth, fulfilling Yearbook needs for the special 5th Grade section, and other activities reliant on the families in our grade.  Hear the information we have gathered and join us in getting organized for next year!
