PTSA is looking for volunteers to help at the Kat Shack. If you know of a student/parent interested, please have them visit: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/5080545a4ac2caaf58-katshack

On Wednesday, November 15th the Beef ‘O Brady’s Wiregrass Location (same plaza as Office Depot and Bonefish) from 4-8pm will be sponsoring a fundraiser with proceeds going to our ASD program and the Sensory Room. Beef’s will donate 15% of your food bill to our program! Please come join us.

We will be having students identify what they are thankful for, as we approach the holiday season. Each grade level will have a turkey displayed with the notes that students leave sharing their thankfulness. Each student will have the opportunity to write what they are thankful for on a cut-out leaf that will be added to make the turkeys feathers. These will displayed for all students and staff to see.

~The Gallup Student Poll national window is open until October 27, 2017 for grades 5 through 12. You may survey students any day of the week (in earlier years you were not able to survey on a Monday).   If a student or parent refuses to have their student participate, just have them sit quietly while the others complete the survey (if completion is done as a class).
