Each luncheon will be held from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. The luncheons are casual get togethers at the home of one of the grade level parents. All parents in the grade level are invited to attend where they may visit with one another and briefly hear from the administration and PTA committee chairs. The wonderful meals are provided by parent volunteers who sign up to bring food. Please watch for the sign up genius coming out later this month to volunteer to bring food.
