Hello Families. Book Fair is coming up starting in the afternoon on Thursday. We really need volunteers to help man it. If we don’t have enough we will have to close the Book Fair during the times we don’t have anyone, thus limiting the kids ability to get in and get books.

Please consider volunteering!

We currently need help at the following times:

  • Friday afternoon
  • Monday, May 8 morning and afternoon
  • Tuesday, May 9 morning and afternoon
  • Wednesday, May 10 morning and afternoon
  • Thursday, May 11 morning and afternoon
  • Friday, May 12 morning and afternoon

Please consider working with us to make this successful!

  Hello families and staff:   We are pleased to share that we are having an apparel sale!  We have a great selection to offer.  Please note we are only doing online sales.

Every Year the PTA sponsors the 6th grade reading incentive program called STRIVE FOR 20. The English Department will give students two separate opportunities to earn tickets for themed gift baskets– one in the beginning of February and one in June. In past years, we have been able to assemble more than 6 baskets for each of these programs. Students are able earn tickets based on how many books they've read throughout the year, and the teachers keep track of the students' progress in the classroom.

Here is where you come in…

We are looking for donated items for student gift baskets. Some ideas are:

***$5-$10 gift cards, mugs, food items, art items, headphones…any small item you know a 6th grader would love 

Items can be dropped off in the lobby at the front desk at the Middle School. Please clearly label any donation “PTA STRIVE FOR 20”. 

This program would not be possible without you – thank you for your support and help!  Please contact with any questions.
