Meet the Teacher & Parking Lot Party

snowcone1Meet the Teacher is this Thursday, August 18, at 6 p.m. And, immediately following, FES PTA will be hosting our annual Parking Lot Party from 7 until 8 p.m. There will be a D.J., a food truck and, of course, snow cones! The PTA will provide a snow cone for each student but you must make sure to pick up your ticket at the designated table… don’t worry, there will be signs. Please note that any additional snow cones will cost $2. The party will be held outside on the basketball court area.

While you’re at FES, please stop by and meet our new Principal, Jacque Hughes. She’s excited to be a Falcon and to meet parents and kids alike! Finally, please remember to sign up for PTA at the Membership table as you enter or leave the school. It is $6 per member and we accept cash, check or credit card.

We are excited for another outstanding year at Florence Elementary and we know you are, too! See you Thursday!
