  • Newsline: By now, you should have received our very own newsletter (If not, search your student's backpack or folders). A big thank you to Angie for religiously putting together the Newsline for us. It is one more way the PTA tries to keep our families informed on. Please pay extra attention to the Save the Date section as this helps to map out what's to come.
