PTA Greenbacks - PTA is giving you one more week to "Light the Way to Leadership" with your Greenback donations. We are almost to our goal and we just need your help to get there. If you haven't made your tax-deductible donation yet, now is your chance. Last week the students got to see Tusky shine with awesome dance moves. Now we want to see Mrs. Bailey and Mrs. Hayden light up the stage with their outstanding singing performance. If our goals are met, Pajama Day will be on Friday, October 10 AND students will get to vote that day on what song they want to hear our beautiful principals sing. Thanks for helping PTA Light the Way to Leadership!
