“Welcome Back” Breakfast

Every year, our fabulous PTA organizes and sponsors a “Welcome Back” Breakfast on the first day of school (Sept. 6).  They need assistance from parent to make this event a success.  Here is how you can help:
We are approaching the start of another school year, can you believe it? Which means the Snow PTA is busy putting together the annual back to school breakfast! We hope you can join us the first day of school, 8:35-10:30 am in the cafeteria. Stop by anytime after you drop off the kids, grab a quick bite and meet some other parents. Great way to work back into the swing of things. We will have some PTA board members on hand to answer any questions you may have as well. If you are interested in bringing  something, please visit the link below to sign up. We look forward to seeing you there!
