The Performing Arts Show, PreK & Kindergarten Fun Night, First Grade Fun Night, Gym Takeover, and all Year-End Class Parties are cancelled and unfortunately will not be rescheduled this school year. 

Mom's Night Out and Designer Handbag Bingo will be rescheduled for a later date in accordance with State social distancing policies. We are excited for these events and are hopeful we can hold them in late summer.
