Great Book Fair…

Wow! A great book fair week. Thank you to everyone who volunteered their time to set-up, help run, and then tear down the book fair, especially our fearless chair Kelly Mix.

Also thank you to our volunteers and Nutters Ice Cream of Sharpsburg that donated the ice cream for our Grandfriends and Family Night last Thursday. Great to see such a wonderful turnout and the kids having such fun.

The PTA’s Spring Family Skate Night will be March 16th from 5 to 7:30pm at Turner’s Skate Palace.

This is ALWAYS such a family event – not to be missed!

 Remember Your Background Form!

Remember that anyone wanting to chaperone, volunteer at the school, have lunch with their child or generally be at the school during school hours must have an approved WCPS volunteer application on file for the 2017-18 school year. Even if you filled it out last year, it has to be done again for this year.   Also, the school has indicated that siblings who are not BOE students are not permitted on school grounds during the school day for insurance purposes.
