Auction Video Shoot Happening on Friday, March 1st

On Friday, March 1st, a team will be at school shooting video for the Raise the Paddle portion of the Auction. There is a chance that your child could appear on film in the background of a shot. This video will be shown at the Auction event and will also be available on the PTSA website for a period of time following the Auction.  If you do NOT wish for your child to appear in the video in any way, please contact Trisha Marshall at PRIOR TO March 1st and include your name and your child(s) name and teacher.  If we do not hear from you before March 1st, we will take that as consent to video.

To make the video shoot run as smoothly as possible, we'll need LOTS OF HELP. If you're interested in helping for all or even part of the day, please contact Trisha Marshall at or sign up {here}You'll be helping to organize kids and get shots and locations set up AND you'll get a sneak preview of the video.

Last Day to Send in Gift Cards

All the snow kept us from school, but hopefully it gave you a chance to round up those unused gift cards. We’ve extended the Gift Card Drive until Friday, March 1st, so grab those gift cards from home or pick one up from a favorite store and SEND THEM TO SCHOOL WITH YOUR CHILD!  Gift cards of any denomination are appreciated. Send them to school with your child or drop them off in the PTSA mailbox in the Main Office (place in an envelope and indicate your child’s teacher). The class that collects the most gift cards will win a DONUT DAY!
