Come see who is moving on to the next level of this nationwide art contest! If you have any questions, please contact our Reflections Chairperson Claudia Pineda (klaudette26@gmail.com).


  1. Trunk or Treat (10/27)

Our students’ favorite Fall event is just around the corner: Trunk-or-Treat! They get to dress up and enjoy all the trunks that have been decorated, and families get to pass out candy and/or share an activity or game. Our amazing event co-chairs, Kimberly Sperling and Nicole Carruth, have a spectacular night planned. Students will be talking about for weeks after!

Your students and their siblings and friends can join in on the fun.  And YOU can sign up to host a trunk, volunteer for a game or activity, or provide candy or prize donations.  Be an integral part of creating fun family memories. Please sign up for a trunk, to volunteer, or to donate here: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/8050449AAA62CA0F58-trunkortreat2#/
