Students in Group D Remote will have their own picture day on Wednesday, March 3, and will need to sign up for a time slot (sign up will be coming through Parent Square).
We plan to take all pictures outside, weather permitting. We will make a decision about this on February 26 based on the forecast.

Third grade is continuing their service project collecting tabs for the Ronald McDonald House of Charlotte. Don’t throw out your tabs! Tabs can be from energy drinks, soup cans, pet food or anything with a tab. 1,128 pop tabs = 1 pound
Send tabs with your student and place them in the container at the PTA desk, give to their homeroom teacher or give to any third grade student.
Each quarter tabs are brought to the Ronald McDonald House to be weighed and added to our total.
The Ronald McDonald House serves as a place for families to stay while their child faces serious medical issues. All money raised through pop tabs collections helps offset the amount that families are able to contribute.
