The PTA is gearing up for next year and we're ready to put together our new committee teams! Visit bit.ly/volunteers_2018-19 to read about our different events and activities, and how you can help. Simply fill out the form to let us know what you're interested in helping with, and we'll reach out to you! Our most pressing needs are for the following committees:
Our annual Fun Run is coming up next month! Our largest fundraiser of the year, Boosterthon is an interactive program that kicks off with a Pep Rally and ends with the highly anticipated Fun Run. Students are encouraged to reach out to family and friends to get pledges for every lap he/she runs (30-35 short laps) during the Fun Run, and parents and families are always welcome to come out on Run day to cheer on your students. Our goal is to raise $30,000 to purchase Interactive Panel Televisions for our classrooms. Our Chameleons will love this year's character theme, Castle Quest, and the kids will learn the "Six Virtues of a True Hero": Respect, Creativity, Focus, Self-Awareness, Trustworthiness, and how to be a Life-Learner. Stay tuned for more specific information coming home with your child soon. Thank you for your support!
Spring Run Club registration is now open! The first session will be Friday, March 16th.
Kindergartners may register for the spring. Please see the Run Club Page for dates, more information and to register!

Join us for our annual Science Expo: Wednesday, February 21, 2018 from 5:30-7pm
The Science Expo is an annual event where we encourage our Chameleons of all grade levels (kindergarten-fifth grade) to practice scientific thinking and problem-solving and improvise when a procedure doesn’t work out as predicted. Students submit a project idea in the registration process, conduct the experiment, and create a display to share their findings. This gives students a chance to apply the science skills they are learning in school while further investigating an area of interest to them.
