Friday Update – June 13, 2014

As we wrap up the school year the PTO would like to send a BIG thank you to everyone who volunteered and participated in the classroom and many other activities and fundraisers this school year. The success of everything we do depends on your support, time, and donations and we are looking forward to another successful year! While the weekly blog updates will stop during the summer break please keep an eye out for occasional messages keeping your posted about activities, back-to-school information, and volunteer needs as we get ready for September. Feel free to e-mail the PTO with any questions you have during the summer break but keep in mind that e-mail box will not be checked daily until later in August. Enjoy your summer – we look forward to seeing you and your children in a couple months!
