SPRING FAIR THIS SUNDAY!

Spring Fair is THIS SUNDAY from 5:30-8pm (with a rain date of June 3rd that we hope we won't need)! We will have bounce houses, soccer, balloons, snow cones, games, a dj, face-painting, and more! There will be a trolley with books, as well! The cost is $10 per child, and adults and incoming kindergarteners are free. Be sure to bring money for spirit wear and food trucks.

We still need both adult and SSL volunteers for Spring Fair! Click here to be an adult volunteer or click here to sign up SSL volunteers. WE NEED YOUR HELP!!

2018-2019 SCHOOL DIRECTORY ADVERTISING OPPORTUNITIES

As we gear up for end-of-year celebrations, AtoZ Connect is already hard at work on our directory for the 2018-2019 school year! There is no better way to connect directly with families in our community and support our school than by advertising in the directory!

There are only a couple premium spots left and we'd love for these to go to families in our community. Please email Jennifer Thompson at jennifer@atozconnect.com for more information or to secure your placement before summer rolls in. As always, thank you for your participation and support!
