Dear Families,
Thank you to all of our Watch DOGS who come and support our school.  It’s great to have you in our building!  PTA is hosting an event tomorrow night for all Dads and their students.  It will be a fun, interactive presentation from Scales and Tails, and there will be donuts.  All father figures are welcome with their Altara student.  It’s from 6:30-7:30 in the school gymnasium.
