This Friday, September, 14, 2012, we will have our first PBS event of the year!
Middle school students will have a Hat Day and will be allowed to wear a hat all day long. The cost to participate is 10 colt cash which should be given to their homeroom teachers before Friday to participate in this event. Students who have paid will be given a wrist band. If students do not have a wrist band, they will be asked to take off their hats whether or not they paid.
Elementary students will have the opportunity to pay 5 colt cash to participate in the Movie and Popcorn event. Students who have paid will be able to enjoy a 30 minute movie during the school day with other students in their grade level.Read More
