PTO board meeting at 8:15 in auditorium – Wednesday February 27th

Tie-Dye shirts Begins this week! 

We will be tie-dying in art class from Feb 28-March 7.  We need parent volunteers to make the process smooth and fun!  Please sign up by contacting Ms. Robbins rrobbin2@houstonisd.org or at the front office or at http://www.signupgenius.com/go/5080f4aaaa928a1f49-tiedye.    All volunteers must be V.I.P.s certified.

Tie-Dye is permanent and will not wash out of shoes or clothes.  Please be aware of this as your student dresses for school on their art day between Feb 28-March 7. It is not a free dress day, uniforms are required. Your child’s shirt will be returned with washing instructions.  Please follow them carefully to keep your tie dye shirt bright and other clothing safe.  The last step is to remember to wear the shirt on field day Thursday March 29th.  Thank you in advance for your help making this a success!
