Successful Meet-and-Greet

Last nights Meet-and-Greet was a huge success with lots of new and familiar faces in the school. We love to see the back to school enthusiasm!

We are happy to report that we had fourteen families sign up for the PTO last night (remember it only cost $5 to join) and many more expressing interest in the classroom.

If you would like to join, please use the "contact us" link to the right under "labels".

Thank you again for your continued support of the PTO and welcome back to school!

Help Needed - Gazebo Construction (Kit)

Mossy Oaks received a grant to build a gazebo through Lowe's Home Improvement Warehouse and we need volunteers to help put the gazebo kit together in our front school loop.

If you are handy with tools and can donate some time we would love to have you! We would like to have it built by the end of October.

Please contact Amy Edwards at 322-2912, if you are interested in helping with this project.
