This is just a few things that came up last night at the home and school meeting. The school noticed that Monday’s Kiss and drop (morning car drop off)  went extremely well with 3 volunteers, So they are hoping to gather some interest in maybe having a few extra volunteers to help out everyday.  If this is something you think you could help with you should contact the school.  The time is from 7:35-8:05 daily but if you can only do 1 day a week or even once in a while, it would be appreciated. Also safe arrival could use a few extra volunteers.  Safe arrival is receiving the messages...

a photo of some vendors and shoppers a photo of vendors and shoppers Thanks to all who helped make this event a success!  I had a vision and everyone helped me to execute it perfectly!  It was an awesome learning experience and I hope it’ll be a continued event through the years.   There are so many people to thank and if I took the time to name everyone I’d probably break the internet. The event raised just over $1400!  We have a few things to square off increasing the income of the event closer to $1460.  The home and school association will discuss how the money will be spent...
