Big Boo Carnival

Plan to bring your family to school in costume this Saturday, October 28th, from 4-7 pm for carnival games, fun and loads of prizes!

All proceeds from this event will go toward sending 4th and 5th graders to outdoor school.

Bring a spouse, grandparent, friend or older student to enjoy the fun and even run a game for an hour! There are more teachers planning to come and help than parents, so let’s change that equation!

Call or email Sheri and let her know you can help us make this happen!

Thank you, Paige, for taking time from your busy schedule to share an important message with our students. A special thanks, too, for Mrs. Randolph. She is Paige’s aunt and put in a lot of time organizing Paige’s visit, students’ questions, and a slideshow.
