PTA Membership Drive Class Contest Update.  Mrs. Hagan's kindergarten class has taken the lead followed closely by Mrs. Ransom's first grade class.  Mr. Jones (4th grade) and Mrs. Kifer's (5th grade) classes are tied for third but there are still many classes in the running to win!  We will extend the deadline to October 15th.  Remember the winning class will receive a cotton candy party. Good luck!
