We have unveiled the Supernova or “donut hole” as the children affectionately call it! Shortly, the perimeter fencing surrounding the Super Dome will be removed. Work is complete and there are some last details being attended to. This completes the PTA efforts to see the removal of the broken/dangerous equipment and its’ replacement with two new pieces of equipment. Next up!-the complete redesign of our outdoor space. This is an effort which will take multi-years and talented parental resources to help see this through. If you have younger children in the school and would like to be a part of this initiative, please contact Kim: email@example.com.
Walk-a-Thon! – 2 weeks out and 35K to go!!!!
