Happy Tuesday Roadrunners,

Parent/Teacher conferences are scheduled for March 14th and 15th. On the evening of March 14th, our dedicated staff will be hosting conferences. To express our gratitude for their hard work, we kindly ask families to contribute a dish for a potluck-style dinner. Any extra food will also be used to provide lunch for our staff on March 15th. Please drop off all dishes at the front office by 4 PM on March 4th. Remember, all dishes should be fully cooked and ready to serve. Mention in the comments what you plan to bring to assist other families. And please keep in mind that all dishes must be NUT FREE.
