Art in Action

Looking for a way to spend some time in your child’s classroom without a big time commitment? Volunteer to lead or assist with in-class art lessons! Art in Action is a PTA-supported program that brings art into the classroom during school hours through parent docents and assistants. The lessons and other training/teaching resources are provided on the website, making it easy for anyone to step into a leading or helping role. The kids love these lessons, and they create fantastic pieces of art in addition to learning about different artists and techniques.

If you would like to volunteer or just want more information, please email Julie Prosper at

Box Tops ContestBox Tops for Education

Clip and send in Box Tops found on household products with your student. Each Box Top is worth at least $0.10 for our school…and they add up! We need to get our earnings back over $1,000 this school year so we’re running a contest. The classroom that brings in the the most Box Tops between now and Friday Oct 13 will win a donut holes party! Find the surprising list of items with Box Tops here.
