Dads and Donuts
Our annual Dads and Donuts event is next Friday October 137:45-8:15 am, in the lunchroom.  Each year the PTL sponsors a fun event called Dads and Donuts. Kids bring Dad to school to enjoy a yummy breakfast and Dad can meet some of the other Dads as well. No Dad? Or Dad can't make it? No problem! Please join us anyway. Grandpas, Uncles, and Moms who have to be both Mom and Dad to their kids are welcome. Please note that all children must be accompanied by an adult during this event.  PTL will provide all the food and beverages for this event. We hope you can join us!!
