We had our monthly assembly led by third grade today. They taught us some motions to help with our daily affirmation. The student council also presented our theme days for next week’s spirit week. Monday-80’s day, Tuesday-Cardinals Day, Wednesday-Career Day, Thursday-Crazy hair/hat day and Friday-Pajama Day. We are asking that you donate a dollar for each day your child dresses in the theme. The money raised will go to support the Miner’s Theater in downtown Collinsville.

Come join the fun this Saturday, April 22nd at Pleasant Ridge Park (1345 Pleasant Ridge Road) in Collinsville from 11-1 p.m. to celebrate books and ice cream! There will be a little incentive for all kids, an ice cream treat and of course books for every child while supplies last.
