The PTO’s largest and most successful event is Student Reward lunches? We reward students who received All As, As & Bs and students who improve their grades 15 points from the previous 9 weeks with a yummy Chick-fil-A sandwich, chips and dessert! 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. It costs approximately $21,000 a year to put on this lunch 3 times a year. All donations are tax-deductible. Join us in rewarding our amazing students!
