Thank You!

Yeah, the first week of school is over. We survived:) I would like to give a huge shout out to all our volunteers these last couple of weeks. We had parents volunteering to help with school supply distribution, teacher welcome back breakfast, classroom furniture moving for teachers, traffic control, first week of kinder lunch, BooHoo Breakfast, Meet the Teacher, Ice Cream Social and all the help for the teachers and staff this week at Parr. Thank you for giving your time to make life a little bit easier for the teachers, staff and students at Ralph Parr Elementary. A special shout out goes to our PTA Board for their continued support and dedication day in and day out. We are really blessed to have such a great group of volunteers. The students are off to a great year and everyone has made this possible!

Thank You,
