Fundraising Opportunities for Plano RDSPD
Spring Show Ads
Spread the word about the fantastic opportunity to advertise in the spring show flyer. There is still time to submit the paperwork for an ad. All money raised from the advertising helps to support student activities. Contact Tammy Clanton for more information.
Please help us support our student activities. It is through fundraising that our students are able to participate in activities outside of school.
