The PTO’s largest and most successful event is Student Reward lunches?

PTO serves anywhere from 1700-2000 students each 9 weeks at a cost of over $7,000 each grading period! This is such a fun, encouraging celebration that our students work so hard for! Our Administration and PTO would love to continue this special reward for the school year, but need your help! Please consider donating to this amazing cause via the link below.
