Principal Bohr Shares Needs
This Thursday is also the last night to accept new pledges! Our goal is to raise $11,000 to support classrooms and student learning by funding teacher grants and we are so close! This year more than ever, we need additional funds to provide an excellent educational experience for all of our students. We completely understand if your family is not in a position to financially support the school right now. You can still be involved by SHARING our fundraiser with friends and extended family online at fun-run.com. We are so thankful for your unwavering support registering your children, sharing the link and donating!
