Upcoming PTA Events


The Big Spring Swap - 4/3 - 2:30-4:00pm - It's baaaaack! Donate your unwanted elementary school clothes, shoes, toys, and books--and take whatever you see that you like! Your giveaway is another person's treasure.

Please bring clean, undamaged donations to the front entrance of the school until Wed 4/2. No adult clothing or items, please. Make sure to mark donation bags with "PTA SWAP" and, if possible, fold and label the contents ("boys 6 year old clothing").

On the day of the swap, there will be a bake sale to support the PTA and PS172.
