Community BuildingThe community building committee sponsors fun events over the course of the school year where parents and students can get to know other parents and students in a fun social environment, fostering a feeling of friendship within our school community. Here are some ideas that have been successful in the past; depending on current interest or volunteer help, these activities may or may not be scheduled each year.
