Event Details and Volunteer Opportunities
8/27 - Teachers' Back-to-School Lunch
The PTC welcomed our teachers back to school the right way by hosting a Back-to-School Lunch. Volunteers generously donated an array of fruit, desserts, and drinks to the event, as well as their time and efforts. Thank you to all of the volunteers who helped make this annual event possible; with special thanks to Mary Gaspar and Erin Hoffman Loder for seamlessly orchestrating the lunch.

Held outside on school grounds on September 12, the Ice Cream Social is a perfect opportunity to meet other parents, staff, and students in an informal setting. Learn about volunteer opportunities throughout the year and place your orders for spirit wear.
