Orange and Black Day
Kinder is on their own playground/area and letting them have costumes should not be a disruption problem for the school learning environment.

There will be an informational meeting on Nov 14th from 5:00-6:00 PM to discuss forming a PTA. The meeting will take place at Santa Margarita in the cafeteria/MPR. Sue King, Ninth district PTA representative, will be here to answer question and outline our next steps.
