Volunteers present a different work of art once a month to their selected grade (October through May). Volunteers help create presentations that encourage both fun and an understanding of art.

There is no need to have any art background. All materials are provided.
This holiday shopping event, held during evening conferences is a great opportunity to shop from many home-based businesses all in one place, at one time.

Mileage club happens during recess every Wednesday that the weather allows for the kids to go outside. The kids who participate have a card that they carry with them while they run/walk the track. They receive a stamp on their card for each lap. Each card contains 5 miles. For each 5 mile card they receive a different color foot and a keychain to put the feet on. The feet are in the order of white, orange, green, blue, silver and gold. The goal is to reach the gold foot of 30 miles. There is a celebration at the end of the year for anyone receiving their gold foot. We also have medals for the top 3 boys and girls of each grade.
