You will notice our Spring Quarter of After School Classes is smaller than usual. This is because, after much discussion, it was decided we needed to evaluate and restructure our program to make it run smoother for both our parents and staff and to be more financially sound. This decision was not easy and we acknowledge the impact to those in our community and ask for your understanding and patience. The handful of classes available this quarter honor commitments that were made to vendors and only possible because Lisa Clayton, our assistant principal, and the office staff are willing to take on this extra work without us having a Spring coordinator. Please know that we are also communicating with our vendors about returning in the Fall 2018 once we are back up and running. We would also love to hear from you and your kids about what classes are on your wish list for next year! Contact us: firstname.lastname@example.org

Our annual PTSA Pathfinder Auction has made over $87,000 so far!
You know that old saying “it takes a village”? Well it truly took a village (and a half) to make this year’s Pathfinder auction the huge success that it was and we owe huge thank yous to so many. From our tireless parent volunteers that worked all year to make this one night happen, to our staff for donating their time to host group events and for taking time out of their day for class art. To our kids for making priceless, unique art that will hang in homes forever-you were a part of this success and this is for you! To David and Lisa for once again going all out with their performances-you continue to inspire with your love and dedication to our school…and entertaining! And of course to all who joined us in this adventure Saturday night, you chose the right adventure, thank you!
“ One way to get the most out of life is to look upon it as an adventure”
