Get ready to get your groove on! The mother-son dance is THIS Friday, April 21 from 7-9.
Sign up to volunteer! Neon Nights STILL needs a lot of help to make the evening go! They especially need volunteers the night of the event. They also need water and cupcakes. See the signup genius link here to help!

Also, attendance/ticket forms may still be sent in until Wednesday. You may also pay at the door the night of the dance.

Spring Walking School Bus is here!

Corinth Elementary Walking Wednesday campaign encourages students and parents to walk or bike to school. Our program promotes healthy habits, reduces traffic congestion, boosts our sense of community, and encourages our cities to provide safe routes to school.

Please plan on walking or biking with your student(s) on Wednesday April 5, 12, 19, and 26. Our program also provides Walking School Bus drop-off sites for parents who would like their child to participate, but may live too far for them to walk, or are not able to join them.

Are you a parent who would like to assist with Walking Wednesdays? If so, sign up here.

Need more information? Please contact Nicole Harris, this year’s PTA Walking School Bus Chair at (816) 665-3095 or by email.
