Weekly Update

WALKATHON

Keep those pledges coming! Here again is the link to our Walkathon Online Donations page. So far, online, we have raised close to $1500, with Ms. Smith, Ms. Santos, Ms. Agregado, and Ms. O’Hara’s classes in the top 4. Let’s work hard to reach our $190 per family goal so we can reach our school goal of $45,000. Thank you in advance for your
generosity!


Volunteer opportunities will be posted in the parent portal this week. Be on the look out!


Our Walkathon is Friday, Oct. 11.

COACH'S CORNER
