“Leave a Legacy”

If you have ever seen our courtyard area after a storm, it is a muddy mess. The pavers will be installed in our courtyard to create a welcoming outdoor area for staff and students to enjoy. An order form is attached.

We need to sell a minimum of 550 bricks @ $75.00 each to cover the construction cost to just prepare the grounds and install the pavers.

Blank pavers will be installed to complete the area around the personalized pavers. This will allow personalized pavers to be added for many years to come. Our future goal is to also install 4 tables with seating, benches and eventually a cover.

As you can imagine – this is a huge project. Help us create a beautiful courtyard by purchasing a brick in honor or memory of someone.

You are welcome to send this order form to booster clubs, businesses, family members etc. We are accepting any financial donations for the purchase of tables, benches or the covering.

Thank you for your support!

Monthly Mental Health Minute

October is Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) Awareness month. Executive Functioning is an essential skill for all individuals; however, deficits in this area make up a large part of the ADHD diagnosis. Therefore, the October Mental Health Minute will provide knowledge about Executive Functioning and how it can impact individuals as well as some strategies that can be used to improve these skills.
