Welcome Back
A word from your PTSA presidents

We hope everyone enjoyed a fun-filled with a dash of relaxing Spring Break. We are looking forward to more sunshine, more fun events and an awesome PTSA general meeting on April 26th (see below for details)!

FYI- because we know you were wondering about fun April facts- on April Fool's Day in certain areas of Belgium, children lock out their parents or teachers and only let them in if they promise to give them sweets.  Isn't that sweet?
 
Thank you for all the continued support....we are having so much fun this year and hope you are as well!  We always look forward to meeting new parents and reconnecting with those we know so don't be a stranger, we would love to say hello!
