Thank you to all the parents and students that participated in Trunk or Treat last night! Over $1600 was raised for those families and children that are not as fortunate as ours!  If you could not make it, we missed you. We hope you plan to attend next year! Special "thanks" to Mrs. Pagano for her efforts in making this happen!

Join Cub Scouts
Be a part of something—be a Scout
JOIN CUB SCOUTS!  Scouts is a year-round family program and boys in grades K-5 can join anytime of the year. Our Pack has exciting events with activities that are fun for kids and the entire family. Our Cubs learn about important life skills, personal safety and environmental stewardship. They take part in fun outdoor activities, get involved in their community, and learn to be part of a team. There is something for every boy—outdoor skills, crafts, sports, hikes, skits & songs, camping, ship/submarine visits, history hikes, pinewood derby, camaraderie and just plain fun. 
To join, ask questions or to just learn more, contact
