Upcoming Events


Please join us on Friday, October 9th from 4:00-8:00 pm for a night full of fun, games, food and rides. You won’t want to miss it! Confetti Eggs are one of the kids favorite attractions so please save your empty egg shells and send them in. Please put them back in the carton and then put your name on the outside so we can enter you into our contest. The class with the most confetti eggs turned in will receive an ice cream party!! Also, we are asking for donations of silly string for the Bash. If you are out and happen to see a few cans please grab them and donate them to our carnival. More information will be coming home soon about this fun filled night!

Based on the weather forecast, we made the decision to re-schedule our fall carnival to Friday, Oct. 9th from 4:00-8:00 pm. All tickets previously purchased will come home with your student on Friday, Oct. 9th. We have extended the pre-sale of tickets through Thursday, Oct. 8th. We are looking forward to a night full of fun, games, food and rides. You won’t want to miss it!

Wrapping Paper!

We will be selling wrapping paper by Innisbrook this fall! Catalogs will go home on October 9th, and all orders will be due by October 23rd. We are hopeful that wrapping paper will be delivered in time for Thanksgiving.
