Is your child participating in Lunch Bunch? Lunch Bunch is a great opportunity for children to socialize with friends, including those in other classes.

Children in the 3’s and VPK classes are eligible to attend. Please stop by the office to pick up a form. Fill out your child’s name and class designation.
