Recap - Fall Fling
The Fall Fling took place on October 13, 2017. It was a fun and festive event attended by 238 students. The PTA would like to thank Tricia Miller and her team of dedicated volunteers (including many staff members) for organizing the event. In addition, we would like to thank all the parents for being so patient during the check-out process as we ensured that every student went home with the designated adult listed on his/her permission slip.
