Thank you for a final push if you haven’t already reached our minimum $190 per family.  

 

Our top three classes have changed since Friday!

1st Place - Ms. Riley’s class with $4165

Enjoy our shared WALKATHON 2019 PHOTO ALBUM and look back on the beautiful day a couple of weeks ago.

We have until Monday, October 21 to continue collecting pledges and donations.  All your efforts will help improve the play space in the courtyard, invest in new technologies and literacy resources, and update some of our athletics equipment and supplies!
