In an effort to "Go Green", the PTA would like to publish the monthly newsletter on our school's website.  Not only is this great for the environment, but it will also reduce the amount of paper notices in your child's backpack!

Please respond to the survey link below by Monday, February 29th so we know how to proceed with the next newsletter.  Thank you for your input..... 

Monthly Newsletter Survey

Not to worry....
A phone or e-mail blast will be sent to everyone as a reminder that the newsletter has been posted, and the monthly math challenge will continue to be sent home as a hard copy.
