Dear A.B. Combs families,


Our 3rd graders had a wonderful event this past week with “Night Under the Stars.”  Our PTA also provided a great cultural arts assembly on Friday with The Magic of African Rhythms performance.  Our students did amazing and it was a great performance enjoyed by all.


Stock the Lounge for Staff: Our PTA is coordinating efforts to Stock the Teacher’s Lounge right before Thanksgiving Break.  Donations can be sent to school or dropped off at carpool on November 17th.  Please sign up here for items to donate.


Clothes needed: Our front office keeps extra clothes on hand for students in the event of an emergency.  If you have any children’s clothing (sizes 5-14) that you are willing to donate, we would greatly appreciate it.  Clothing items can be dropped off in the front office.
