Ice Cream
Ice Cream Social and School Supply Drop-Off
Saturday, August 12, 2017 6:40 AM

At this point in time, we are not sure the building will be ready for an Open House on the 24th. Therefore, we would like to revise the event to a supply drop off in the big gym lobby & ice cream social with staff on the playground by the lunchroom from 12:00 – 1:30 p.m.. Pre-K and K-5th grade families are welcome to attend. The building WILL be ready for students on the 28th. If by chance construction progresses at a steady rate and the building is ready, we will open it up for families and kids on the 24th.  School Supply Lists can be found here.
