During the month of October, the 3rd graders will be supporting The Montgomery County Knights
. The Knights are a Special Olympics Soccer Team. Money raised will go towards funding the use of indoor facilities during inclement weather. Many of these athletes look forward to their soccer events and we want to ensure the success of the program! The 3rd graders will also be making posters this month to show our support and cheer on the athletes. The October Dress Down Day
money will go towards this cause. The Dress Down Day will cost $1.00, but additional contributions are welcome
. Look for additional opportunities to support this cause in the weeks to come. Let's go Knights!
