Get your tickets at the Fair! We now have a Square account.


Folks, the most fab festival in town is THIS SATURDAY.
Can’t wait to see you all there!  

Volunteers & Donations

Please go to our Riverside Drive Sign Up Genius page, scroll down to your classroom and click on the time you are available.

If there is no convenient time in your classroom, feel free to volunteer for another classroom.  We can use all the volunteers we can get.

If you don’t know what to do with your child while you are volunteering, how about trading with another parent?  When they volunteer, you take their child; when you volunteer, they can take your child!  It’s a win-win for all!!!

If you’re not sure of your schedule yet but find yourself free on Saturday at the fair, simply check in at the Volunteer Booth and ask where you can be useful.

We are in need of drink items to be sold during the Fall Festival.

Gatorade (or any sports drinks), Waters, Juice boxes, Soda’s 

We also are looking for anyone that has tables and pop ups we can borrow instead of rent, this is also on the Sign Up Genius.

All donations can be dropped off at the Parent Center any time this week.

Friday’s Ice Cream Social was a big blast and great success! Thanks to everyone for the great turn-out. And an especially huge thank you to our wonderful teacher and parent volunteers!!
