We have now qualified to earn the MARS Award! (Men Are Really Special)

Thank you to all the men who have joined PTA. We can always use more!


Now is a great time to join PTA. For only $5.00 per member, anyone can join - parents, grandparents, students, other family members and community members. We need 20 more grandparent members so we can achieve the Generations Award! By joining, you are showing your support for your child and our school. PTA helps fund programs like our Early Act First Knight Program. Joining PTA doesn't mean you have to volunteer or attend meetings, it shows you care about your child's education. Membership forms have been sent home so check your child's backpack for membership forms.
