Parents are reminded to return photo sheets to the school by Oct. 12.

Women’s volleyball will start up on Oct. 18 at the Erskine School. For more information Call Nancy at 742-0551.

Post on your calendar the Family Halloween Dance, hosted by Erskine parent council on Friday Oct. 29. More information to follow.
