Friday, October 11th.

Good Evening Hawks!
What an amazing end to the week with HAWK WALK!  Together, our school community raised funds to support initiatives at our school like coding, CREATE Time, STEM Learning, and classroom performances.  Our parents and PTO are an integral part of making our school a special place.  I want to thank all of you who helped make the day such an amazing success.  Education is partnership between school and home and I am proud to be your partner in educating your children.
Have a wonderful week!

THANK YOU to everyone for making the 2019 Hawk Walk a SUCCESS!
This year's Hawk Walk looks to be another successful year! As of today, our numbers show that we raised over $15,000!  
This year's Hawk Walk was truly amazing due to the number of volunteers that we had help out! We cannot thank you enough for helping prepare for the walk, counting donations, helping with set up/ take down and spraying the students down with water! We hope that your kids had a great time and that you were able to see or hear about some of the event!  
We would like to thank Golder Ranch Fire Department, the Ironwood Ridge Cheerleaders, the CDO Chearleaders, Wilson's Wrangler, Wally, and the Rialto Theater's "Rialtaur" Dinosaur for coming out to the walk. A big thank you to Crown Concepts, Whole Foods, Funtasticks, and Pump it Up, for their donations.
We would like to say a Huge THANK YOU to Mr. Laumets and Ms. Tidwell for entering the Messy Zone! We loved watching you get made into a human sundae. The question is, who had more fun... The adults or the kids?

Congratulations and Thank You to the students in  
the Messy Zone! The winners were: 
Kallen McGuire
Mason McGuire
Alexandra Rose
Natalie Rose 
Khloe Laumets
Max Carlton
