Please note that the next Cubcat Conversation will take place on Friday, March 9. All are welcome to attend.
Current Staff Directory: In case your children are interested in making Valentine’s for any or all of our staff members, here is a Current Staff Directory.
Smart Start Children’s Book Drive and Sale: Donate new or previously enjoyed children’s books to the box in the front lobby of our school for Smart Start Partnership for Children and give the gift of reading! Donated books will be sold at the Smart Start Book Sale on Saturday, February 24 at Grace Lutheran Church.

To continue with the Winter Olympic theme, be entertained with the rings of Asheville Hoops from 5:45-6:30pm! The Family Dinner Raffle Basket already contains numerous amazing gift certificates for local restaurants and activities, but if you have gift certificates that you would be willing to donate to make the basket even more appealing, we would love to have them (think about ones you got for Christmas that you know you will never use!).

We have heard from many of you that you love the new spirit rock, but you say you would gladly pay extra to have it done for you. Well, we have good news….for an additional $25 donation, we have several very artistic parent volunteers that are willing to make that happen for you! Simply visit the MySchoolAnywhere online Store, select the Cubcat Cornerstone date you are interested in, and then add the PAINT MY ROCK add-on option. You will have 3 message options, several background design options, and you can choose up to 4 colors. And then we take care of the rest!
