Thank you to all those families who contributed to this year's Walk-a-thon, to all those who joined us on the walk and to the committee for all of their hard work. Congratulations to all the lucky winners of our raffles on the field. Proceeds will go toward replacing the data cabinet and switches in our IT room. Any additional monies collected will go toward installing new security cameras in the first floor hallways of the school. God bless you for your continued generosity to our school.

Please: NO masks (make up is fine), NO props, NO weapons and NO "abbreviated"costumes.
The teachers will ask for help if they need it. For the most part, they will give their own small celebrations in their classrooms or in the cafeteria for the middle school. Please do not send in any treats toschool unless you are specifically directed to do so by the teacher or room mothers. Please be respectful of this request. It will help the event flow smoother.
