Kindergarten BBQ

On Wednesday, August 24th 2016 from 5:00 – 7:00 we had a great kinder BBQ on the Kindergarten Playground. This was a fun event for the whole family! It was a great chance to meet fellow kindergarten families, and for the kids to play before school begins. The PTO will provided hot dogs, hamburgers and drinks. Everyone brought a dish to share. If your last name began with A-L, you would bring a salad or side dish to share.  If your last name began with M-Z, a dessert to share.
