Donuts With Divas: Donuts with Divas will have an 80’s theme this year! Totally awesome! Donuts with Divas will be on Friday, February 10th from 7:15 a.m. to 8:00 a.m. Students can bring their mom, grandmother, or favorite diva with them to enjoy a donut, coffee and juice in our gym. To ensure that we have enough donuts to serve everyone that attends, we recommend that your student eat a small breakfast at home that morning since we will be serving one donut per person. We can’t wait to see you there!


PTO is looking for a few “Dudes” to volunteer on the donut buffets on February 10th. We only need one hour of your time, from 7:00 – 8:00 a.m. To volunteer, please email Stacy Jones at Thank you for your support!
