A HUGE Thank You to all the parents, families and businesses who contributed to the $30,000 total this fundraiser generated
for our school.  WOW!


We all had such a great time at Tigerfest and I hope you and your family also enjoyed it too.  Hannah Averbuck won the raffle with the pumpkin carved by parent Andrew Stanbro. Congrats!

Special thanks: to all the volunteers that worked so very hard, The Baker Family for the hamburgers, cheese and buns donation, The Berger Family for the donation of all the popcorn popped and ready to go, all the cakes and cupcakes donated for the treat walk, and all those that donated candy. Thank you for lending tables, awnings, coolers, and water jugs so we could provide free water. Also if you have not picked up your table or awning please contact me at to arrange pick-up of item.  I want to take a minute to thank La Tortilla Factory for their donation of the pita bread and Smart and Final for their $25 donation as well.

I would love to hear your favorite or least favorite things about Tigerfest this year. Please continue to post your pictures online or email them to me. If you have any ideas for next years Tigerfest please contact me.  I’m going to start planning next year’s event and would love to hear your ideas so I can hopefully include them next year.

Thanks so much for all your help!

Nov 4, 7:45- 10am – Safe Routes to School… we have 4 parents so far, the Principal, law enforcement, Public Works, engineering and Dept of Health coming to do a walk through our neighborhood for the trouble spots that may make things difficult for our children to get to school safely. This is our chance to have our voices heard and possibly have changes made. We are lucky to be one of 10 schools to have received a grant to help us examine safety concerns. It is a one time commitment. Let me know if you want to join us on this walkabout., 588- 8026.
