HAPPY DRY FRIDAY (fingers crossed)

General Meeting on Wednesday at 7pm in the school library

Kids love it when parents know what is going on at their school and for once know more than they do!

Attend the GM on Wednesday evening to learn more – topics below;

    There will be an update on the new curriculum straight from the classroom and how Ross Road is working it into the classes.

Past Events

Last Monday we had a really successful Halloween Costume Exchange.

The aim of these smaller of events is to build community and this one certainly did that, it resulted in a lot of happy kids. Mission Accomplished! We did raise a total of $100 which is fabulous and an added bonus.

Thank you Christy Lutz for organizing.
