We have EXTENDED the Recipe Submission, 5th Grade Cover Contest and Sponsorship Program deadline to January 23rd.  Now you have time to think about your family's favorite meals and get creative over the winter break.  Please note these recipes DO NOT have to be Spanish cuisine just your family's favorites...kid tested & family approved.  If you would like to send in additional recipes outside of your assigned "Course", we will add it if there is room in that category.  Check out the PTA website for details on this wonderful project!
