Announcements for this Week:

  • A Message from the PTA regarding Field Day Shirt Orders--                                                                                                               

    Hi Parents,                                                                                                                                           

    We would like to give you an update on the field day shirts you ordered prior to school closing.  Those shirts were in the process of being ordered, but since they have not been printed, the plans are to keep the same color you ordered for next year and Ms. Pennington will order the next size up in your shirt.  If your child is currently in the 5th grade and you paid for a shirt, please email us with your mailing address for full refund. If you do not want a shirt for next year, please email us and a refund will be mailed to you.  

    Please send your emails to Thanks for your understanding.
