Tuesday, October 31 is our party/parade day. The K-4th grades will have our parade at 1:00 in the gym. Parties will follow the parade.  NO weapons (swords, guns, lassos, pitchforks…) NO scary masks, no fake blood. NO soda, gum or siblings allowed at parties. Students may wear their costumes to school. They won’t be allowed to put make-up on once they arrive so either put it on them or save that for trick or treating that night. Teachers can’t leave their classrooms to put costumes on students.

Submitted by sgroll on Tue, 10/24/2017 - 12:53

Ms. Cooper's Greenhouse Management/Floral Design class created these floral arrangements. To break up the regular content, the class will occasionally take time to do floral design. It provides creative opportunities for students and teaches them real life skills as well as principles of design. Students have the opportunity to take their arrangements home for the cost of the flowers or leave them for teacher purchase.
