A Teacher Representative will faithfully attend and provide input to the many activities and concerns that our children are experiencing.

At the end of the school year, a form is sent home to each child who has a balance in his/her account.

If your child is in sixth grade, the money may be refunded or it will be transferred to Pennfield Middle School TOP
