Valentine Fair - This Saturday, September 29th


Saturday, September 29th, 2012

2:00 PM to 7:00 PM 

The Valentine Fall Fair kicks off our year as the first of many wonderful school events. This year the Fair has turned into a STAMPEDE and is joined with two fun events, the 4th Annual Shopping Boutique and an after-party (with Halloween theme this year), that we hope will bring our families together to build lasting memories for the kids while raising money for Valentine PTA-funded programs and projects.  Please get involved because theSTAMPEDE is coming - and you don't want to be left behind.
