Breaking news for 2018!Top of Page

The PTO is excited to announce.....
                                               A NEW slide has been installed!!!
 
In the beginning of the school year, parts of our playground equipment were removed due to wear and tear over decades of children playing on them! The PTO has been working with the School Board and the District to replace what we can and come up with creative solutions to make recess as engaging as we can for our kids. We are also looking into acquiring more recess aides in the new year to maintain that safe and engaging recess environment. There is a lot more to do, but your PTO and our wonderful volunteers are ready to take on the work!
