Hi parents,

*Thank you to the families who attended Mrs. Gartrell's sharing afternoon last week.  There were lots of smiles and the Kindergarten students loved to show what they've been learning.

*Thank you to our PAC who worked hard last week getting out all of the cookie dough orders!  Also, they delivered 201 hot dogs to some happy kids last week.  Thank you to the parents who helped out with the distribution of these.  At the PAC meeting last week, the PAC committed to paying for each class to have a Eureka Science presentation this spring.  They also put forth some money for the Grade 6 leaving ceremony.  Thank you PAC!

*Grade 6 information.  Please send a baby picture of your son/daughter to for the year end slideshow. 

*Last week our three swimmers did an excellent job of representing Parkcrest at the District Swim Meet!  We hope to have more swimmers participate next year.  Thank you to Mrs. Hofmann for organizing this. 

*We won our first Flag Football game last week with Mrs. Huffman assuming the coaching job!  We play again this Tuesday at home against Brock Middle school.
