 December PTA Meeting

Join us for our December PTA meeting next week on Wednesday, December 12, at 7 p.m. - our first evening meeting of the year! The PTA meeting will start right after the Principal's Pizza from 6-7 p.m. 

Pizza Night

Our first restaurant night of the year is next week on Wednesday, December 12. Order from Domino's between 11:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. via the app, phone, or in store. Use code DN3 and CRS will receive 20% of the revenue. No cooking or driving and you raise money for CRS at the same time! Plus, have your kid(s) bring in a copy of the receipt to their homeroom teacher(s), as the class with the greatest participation will get their own class pizza party!

Happy eating! Get all the details here.
