Journey Photo Fundraiser

On Friday, January 6th your student brought home a special package of portraits from our photography partner Strawbridge Studios. They have designed a new program called "Journey", which is a multi-year product that a majority of students in 2nd-5th grades will be receiving. All other students should receive a fun pack if they had fall pictures taken this year. This is a very important fundraiser for our school, so please keep this in mind when placing your order. We are able to use these funds to purchase supplies, provide professional development for staff, and pay for staff planning days. Thank you for your support!
