Congratulations to the following students and their families:   Alison A., Kindergarten; Ayan S., First Grade; Braden D., Third Grade, and Skye L., Fourth Grade.  These students have been in school on time every day this year! They have not missed a day, nor been late.  This is a team effort as a family and we celebrate you! T hese students will be celebrated with a special lunch and certificate.  Thanks so much,  parents, for working hard to have your children in school, on time, every day.
 
Looking forward to seeing you at the auction Saturday night.  So much time and effort goes into this event and I hope you all appreciate all our PTA does collectively to make this event great for all of us.  Thank you, Shelden Hyde and Amy Mason, for the tireless efforts in creating the event at this special venue, as well as managing all the  donations.  Thanks to all who donated, including our generous teachers for their treats, to all who baked, picked up, dropped off, decorated and helped set up.  You are appreciated.
