Sussex Avenue HSA Week
May 20 - May 24
Monday is an "A" day.

A note from our Co-Presidents
We'd like to say a huge THANK YOU to Lauren Hassan and her volunteers for running another great Color Run!! The weather held out for us and the kids (and volunteers!) had an absolute blast! We will continue to take donations through this week for those who didn't have a chance to send theirs in yet. The HSA funds programs for every grade in the school and we thank everyone for helping us to make that happen.

We have another great week ahead of us! The 4th and 5th grade Chorus Concert will be Monday at 10am. Monday night the 5th graders and their parents are invited to an Open House at FMS. Tuesday night will be an HSA Open House at 6:30 - Come find out what we have planned for the rest of the year! The Superintendent's presentation will follow immediately after at 7pm. And lastly, don't forget to show your show your school pride this Friday on Spirit Day.

Have a good week!
