We have nationally recognized authors and illustrators come each year to interact with our children for a day. Children also take field trips to connect their learning to the real world. Our PTO sponsors many activities such as skating parties, open house, and parent information nights.

At the end of the year, we also have one of the best field days around with many team building games and plenty of chances to get wet.
