The harvest festival is coming up!!!  Please come to the school on October 11th from 6pm to 8pm.  There will be snacks, games, music, a haunted hallway, and cake walk.  The proceeds will help our 8th graders go to Washington DC.  The PTA is in need of not only volunteers, but people to donate cakes.  If you can help out, it would be greatly appreciated!  Please contact any member of our PTA via our website.
