Message from our PTA President

Thanks again for all the wonderful support with the Read-a-Thon campaign! We raised over $7000 for our school! A portion of this will go directly to our library fund, and the rest will be distributed back to the teachers and specialists for classroom support. This will help fund field trips or other in-class projects.

Hope everyone had a great time at our 2nd annual Garba Festival! It was an fun filled evening, and we look forward to hosting another one for our community. Thanks to Sheetal and Preeti for their countless hours and efforts to make everything run so smoothly!

This coming Friday is our biggest community event, the Fall Family Fun Fair at the blacktop between 5pm-8pm. I look forward to seeing everyone there! We are still needing a good number of volunteers to run food and game booths, plus setup and cleanup, too.

Please visit the ticket booth sales this Wednesday at 2:50pm for Fall Fun Fair advance tickets sales. You get discounted prices, and this will help you avoid the long lines on event day. In addition, you can purchase tickets on our Mohr Future Fund website.

We are also rolling out our new Spirit Wear website with Logo Boss. Look for more information on that soon!

From our Vice Principal, Mary Geasa, we are asking for new or gently used board games, puzzles, etc to have available for kids on rainy days or for kids needing a non-physical lunchtime activity. There will be a drop off box set up in the office.

Have a great week!
